"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

I’ve been thinking a lot about Art & Healing lately ❤

Special Wednesday Call for Submissions

Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing

Open July 1- July 31

Your Wild and Precious Life” Issue

Open for submissions for our 3rd issue due out in September! We publish previously published work so send us your new or old poems on the theme “your wild and precious life” (we love Mary Oliver). Spread the word! Thanks!”


Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing aims to be the premier online literary journal for writers and all who are looking to creativity as a way to process and express the healing journey.

Whether experiencing or looking for physical, emotional, or spiritual healing, we hope this will be a place to which you come as you journey the luminous path to wholeness. AtSnapdragon Journal, in addition to poetry and creative nonfiction, we are now highlighting photography! Eventually, we will publish research articles and interviews of those doing this work in the field.

Why the Name?

We could not think of a better name for this journal other thanSnapdragon! At its deepest level, the Snapdragon flower essence helps the soul to distinguish its use of creative forces — especially those which radiate from the lower energy centers, and those which are used for spoken word. The Snapdragon flower is often used as a remedy to help persons — particularly those who experience extreme tension in the jaw and mouth — to re-direct their powerful metabolic energy into its rightful channels. By harmonizing the relationship between these energy centers, the soul evolves in its use of creative power. And so, with Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing, our desire is to provide a platform for your self-expression and soul’s healing!”


“We’re using Submittable to receive your poetry, creative nonfiction and photography. We will only accept, via email, research papers on art and healing. All other submissions via email will not be accepted. Our Submittable link will go live the first of each month we are open for submissions (Jan., April, July, Oct.). See our themes and guidelines below. Also sign up for our mailing list to receive notifications. Thanks!”

We consider new and previously published work on the theme of healing (emotional, physical, spiritual, community, etc.).
