A couple of my poems were recently published in Amygdala, a new online literary journal dedicated to changing the conversation about mental health in this country.
I really resonate with Amygdala and their commitment to literature that can make a difference.
Here’s a bit more about Amygdala, from their website:
“Amygdala’s goal is to build a sense of community by creating a platform for people to bring mental health issues into dialogue. We seek to achieve this through original works including: creative non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and art. We are looking for work that elucidates the wide range of issues and emotions mental health disorders evoke.…. It is our hope that Amygdala will de-stigmatize society’s view on mental health and create deeper recognition of the importance of mental health services.”
