Ignore the 2017 deadline – submissions are still wanted for the Bhor Anthology Project from the Bhor Foundation (a not-for-profit which provides mental health support). If enough poetry and prose are received, there may be 2 separate anthologies. The following text is copied from the website: “We are curating and editing a book of stories, non-fiction narratives, poetry and art around mental health. We are looking for original, anonymous work if you want to protect your identity; we hope to help create awareness around this important area and help people realise they are not alone. We will have a section around the trials and tribulations of being a caregiver, so if you are a caregiver or want to write about one, please write.” More info here.
