"Snapdragon: A Journal of Art & Healing is the inspiration of local poet, Jacinta V. White. White, who has facilitated “poetry as healing” workshops, through her company The Word Project, in the Triad for close to 10 years, has seen how art enhances the healing process and wants to provide a greater platform for art and healing.
Cyndi Briggs (@DrCyndiBriggs), a resident and active community member of Winston-Salem, known for her writing, creativity and public speaking, has joined Snapdragon Journal as a co-editor, focusing on creative nonfiction. White will edit poetry.
Snapdragon Journal is an online, quarterly featuring poetry, creative nonfiction and research. Eventually, White and Briggs think they will include visual art and photography. There is a small subscription fee to receive the online and year-end print journal, but there is no cost to submit your previously published or new work. The editors of Snapdragon Journal are interested in publishing emerging and established writers.
“Your piece doesn’t have to talk specifically about healing. We don’t need to see the word [healing]. What we are hoping to do with Snapdragon Journal is provide a safe space for people to share their art and that art be something that has accompanied them on their healing journey as it will someone else’s.” White says.
Submissions are being accepted the month of January for the first issue due in March 2015.
