I came across this call-out for poems in Writing Magazine, by a blogger called Tracey Ward, who wants to raise the profile of mental health issues and sufferers. (I am not sure what will be done with any proceeds from the book, should it make a profit.) Tracey is currently seeking crowdfunding, in the hopes of publishing the anthology in hardback.

Digital literary journal, The Sunlight Press, accepts submissions of up to five poems (in a single attachment). Full information here. There is a relatively quick turnaround time (you should hear from the editors around four-to-six weeks from submission), and there is payment for accepted work. The following is copied from the website: “We want to hear the ways people turn toward light and hope, whether it is through the arts, culture, spirituality, or humor, and also how they respond to the darkness and navigate unknown spaces. Epiphanies are born from the ordinary and the extraordinary; whether it’s a reflection unfolding during a morning walk, after the loss of a loved one, or in the middle of unexpected laughter, we want to know about these moments.
The Sunlight Press publishes twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays. Creative nonfiction, including essays, book reviews, and artists on craft pieces appear on alternating Mondays. Poetry and fiction appear on alternating Wednesdays. Occasionally, we publish additional posts, including Editors’ notes, contest news, photography, etc.”
