ELJ believes that #mentalillnessawareness and #endingthestigma are of paramount importance. We believe in the necessity of sharing our mental illness stories to facilitate writing through illness and create broader awareness. We want your poetry and prose as part of our Esperanza Corner of each issue. We ask that you follow our regular guidelines for poetry and prose and include a trigger warning, if necessary. We want to feel you, support you, be a home for you. Be Well. Write Well. Submit.
