the awakenings review


A literary journal published by The Awakenings Project.

Established with the support of the University of Chicago Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation in 2000, The Awakenings Review is one of the nation's leading literary reviews entirely committed to publishing the works of artists, writers, and poets with mental illness. The AR looks for submissions from writers and poets who have a distinct relationship to mental illness--either self, family member, or friend--who can write about about recovery, hope, uplifting experiences, and taking a positive direction in life.
