Greetings Poetry Fans and Poetry Fam! I’ve just been published … yet again! I’m thrilled to announce that my work appears in the latest issue of Snapdragon: A Journal of Art and Healing. They are a femme-and WOC-led artistic journal I’ve long been a fan of, and after submitting 14 poems over the past 5 years, it finally happened!
Snapdragon comes out quarterly, and each issue has a theme. This year-end issue”s theme is depression/acceptance, and my poem “Silence” is the first up!
I wrote “Silence” in 2013, and many of its sentiments are still true today. If you, too, are living with mental illness — a result of trying to be sane in an insane society, or well in a civilization that profits from illness — you are not alone! I hope you find comfort and connection in my poem and in all the beautiful work in this issue. The journal is not available for free, so please consider purchasing a copy to enjoy, or to gift a friend!
You can read the original poem here.
