Taking Submissions: Grey Matter Monsters – Takers of Souls

June 13, 2016


Deadline: June 13, 2016
Payment: Contributor’s Copy

A Lycan Valley Press Charitable Anthology
Mental illness, depression, suicidal thoughts, these are the monsters that lurk deep within the grey matter of our brains; the takers of souls.
Sometimes people need to see it to believe it, but how do they see these demons of the mind? I propose we show them.
Find an invisible illness of the mind and manifest it into a physical monster – something people can see and hopefully better understand. Make them feel what the sufferer feels. Help them understand the turmoil, the pain, and the frustration dealt with on a regular basis. Let’s bring forth the monsters and make them a reality for the readers.
Let us dig deep and make people aware, while we also help kids in need. Kids, who are dealing with monsters of their own.
