Publisher’s description: Ailment - Chronicles of Illness Narratives was founded in response to Editor-in-Chief Erin Catherine Batog's hope to connect with others impacted by the lived experiences of chronic illness. She has Multiple Sclerosis, and as a writer, wanted to create a platform where the realities of chronic illness can be expressed. Her hope is that with the voicing of the pain, struggle, challenge, uncertainty, joy, faith, and hope that accompany a life impacted by chronic illness, healing can take place in some form. Creativity in truth is transformative.
Ailment - Chronicles of Illness Narratives publishes prose/essay, poetry, drawing, painting, and photography in response to a creative prompt. The creative prompt is the theme of the issue. The submission must be new, original work in response to the creative prompt. We publish once a year. We promote our contributors through our website, including work outside of Ailment.
