Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing is online literary quarter for poets, writers, photographers, 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 and wellness, we aim for this journal to be a place others come on their luminous path to wholeness. ​In addition to poetry, creative nonfiction and photography, our "Art Speaks" blog features everyday people who are using art as a catalyst for self and/or community healing.

Submissions Policy
Poetry & Creative Nonfiction (memoir, essays, blog post) Guidelines: All submissions must come through Submittable. - We ask for no more than one poetry submission of 1-3 poems (one poem per page and no more than 5 pages) or one creative nonfiction submission of up to 2,500 words and in English only. Due to time constraints, we will not read your submission if it's over the limit. - We accept simultaneous submission. We respond within two months. Please keep this in mind as you consider simultaneous submissions. - Poems and creative nonfiction should be 12pt text; set in Courier, Arial, Times New Roman (double space creative nonfiction). - We consider new and previously published work on the theme of healing (emotional, physical, spiritual, community, etc.). Please tell us, if your piece was previously published and you own the rights, where and when it first appeared so we can note that. - Please use our online submission portal to withdraw submissions. We really appreciate if you do this as soon as you know a submission is no longer available for publication. - We believe a writer should have full control of their work, so all copyright and publication rights remain with the writer at all times. However, we appreciate exclusive publication rights for three months after the issue has been published to ensure maximum impact. And that if your piece appears in Snapdragon Journal before any others that you acknowledge that in any subsequent publications.​ Photography: We're looking to profile one photographer in each issue. Send us your work and, if selected, it will appear throughout an issue. And there will be a page dedicating to sharing with our readers who you are. Send 15-20 images -- NO WORDS/POETRY with the photos -- cropped at 4 x 6, 4 x 4 or 5 x 4, all at 200 dpi resolution through our Submittable site.
