Barking Sycamores, a literary journal publishing poetry by neurodivergent writers, invites poems and artwork for Issue 2, Summer/Fall 2014. Our theme: “If Thine Eye Be Single”. Submission period: May 1 – June 30, 2014.
We invite poems and artwork related to the ideas of focus, devotion, obsession, single-mindedness, and vision. Neurodivergent (autistic, ADHD, bipolar, synesthesia, etc.) artists and poets are encouraged to interpret this theme as broadly or as narrowly as desired. Artwork submitted may be considered for use as cover art.
We support the concept of neurodiversity and reject neurological differences being pathologized. For this reason, we ask that writers and artists please consult our full submission guidelines to understand the philosophy of our publication before sending any work to us.
