WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS FOR OUR SECOND ISSUE
Deadline for submissions is September 13th, 2013
Our online arts and literary magazine, The Perch, is a publication of the Yale University Program for Recovery and Community Health (PRCH) that aims to present a wide range of voices on mental health and recovery—both from established writers and from new, emerging authors and artists. We conceptualize a “perch” as both a higher vantage point from which to survey an area and gain a new perspective as well as a safe place upon which to rest. Our magazine’s goal is to paint a broad landscape of the many paths to recovery, and offer a vantage point from which to listen to voices that are often silenced or ignored. In the spirit of Yale PRCH, we take a broad view of recovery and mental wellness, and welcome submissions that do not directly address mental health issues per se.
We look to publish original, creative work in a variety of genres, including but not limited to, essays, poetry, fiction, and personal narratives. In addition, we welcome visual artwork for publication in our Parachute Factory section. The Parachute Factory, a gesture towards an earlier use of the building in which Yale-PRCH is presently housed, serves as a physical gallery space for painting, sculpture, and public performances. We like to think of our magazine as providing a comfortable space for risk-taking in the arts and self-expression, much like a parachute allows for soft landings, even amidst the harshest territory.
