Creative Literary

Psychoanalytic Perspectives is the first psychoanalytic journal to offer a Creative Literary section devoted to short stories, creative non-fiction and poetry. These pages are dedicated to recognizing pieces that are tied both strongly and loosely to themes inherent in psychoanalysis.

It is important to cultivate creative space within this journal for many reasons. Creativity is an important part of our work and daily lives. Through these pages, we carve out a domain where artistic expression is both valued and appreciated. Creativity exists in everyone and this section celebrates the threshold where creativity and psychoanalysis intersect.

The Creative Literary section is open to therapists and others interested in publishing in a psychoanalytic journal. Recent issues of Psychoanalytic Perspectives have included creative works by Thomas Ogden, Robert Stolorow, Bonnie Zindel and Rachel Newcombe.

Short stories and essays should not exceed 12 pages when single spaced. We do not consider material that has been previously published.

Private Lives

In this section we publish nonfiction narratives that describe an emotionally engaging and compelling experience in the author’s personal life. Ideally, essays should spring from some significant dilemma the writer has encountered in his or her life - the things one can't forget, the regrets, the outrage. Examples include such experiences as love, loss, or events that defined or altered the writer’s life.

The “Lives” section of the Sunday New York Times Magazine represents the kind of stories appropriate for this section.

Submissions should be written in narrative form rather than scholarly style, so that the reader is engaged in a personal experience with the narrator.

The length should be no more than 14 pages, double spaced.
