"What are Asian and Pacific Islander women’s experiences with mental illness and mental health? How do Asian and Pacific Islander women’s multiple identities intersect, shape and influence unique experiences of mental illness? How can we seek a deeper connection with our Asian and Pacific Islander American communities around issues and experiences of mental illness? What does the journey to mental health look like for Asian and Pacific Islander American women experiencing mental illness?"
Submissions will be kept confidentially and can be offered anonymously or under a pseudonym.
I welcome personal essays and reflections, critical essays, letters, interviews, poems, printable images and other reflections of mental illness and mental health. I encourage contributors to dig deep and find and share their authentic, courageous voice. The anthology will be self-published, with a hard or electronic copy given for free to authors whose pieces have been chosen for the anthology. In addition to self-publishing, other venues for publishing will be explored.
Submit pieces to: email@example.com
Up to 3 single-spaced pages for written work. Please also include a brief bio of yourself.
Deadline: September 30, 2013
