Please See Me is an online literary journal that features health-related stories. The mission of the publication is to elevate voices and stories of vulnerable and underserved populations and those who care for them. At the heart of this publication is the cultivation of meaningful patient–provider partnerships in the spirit of wellness. To that end, we will publish work written by patients, family members, creatives, caregivers, and providers; anyone with a health-related tale to tell is invited to submit.

Each issue of Please See Me has a theme, though we consider any health-related story during this inflection point in time, and we encourage diverse voices to submit. Our Winter 2020 Issue #6 theme is "Bias" reflecting the need to curate narratives engendering empathy and understanding of those marginalized. Bias is widespread, touches all of us, and includes race, religion, physical appearance, age, mental/physical illness, social status and more.

Creative Nonfiction draws heavily from unsolicited submissions. Our editors believe that providing a platform for emerging writers and helping them find readers is an essential role of literary magazines, and it’s been our privilege to work with many fine writers early in their careers. A typical issue of CNF contains at least one essay by a previously unpublished writer. We’re open to all types of creative nonfiction, from immersion reportage to personal essay to memoir.

Please do send work that blends style with substance, and reaches beyond the personal to tell us something new about the world. We're drawn to stories that balance a strong narrative (i.e. something happens) with a teaching or reflective element (i.e. the something that happens matters for some reason). Please do include your complete contact information and keep us informed of the status of simultaneous submissions. Please don't send poetry.

C&R Press began in 2006 as a literary press committed to publishing books from new and emerging poets whose work might otherwise be ignored by commercial publishers. We were interested in supporting authors whose thoughtful and imaginative contribution to contemporary literature deserved recognition and support. We've since expanded our catalog to include exciting new fiction and creative nonfiction and reportage/journalism, too.

Do understand that we get more submissions per month than we could ever publish in a lifetime. Please don't take rejections personally. We frequently reject books that are picked up at other presses!
