Call for Submissions

Psychology Tomorrow Magazine reveres the intersection of psychology and art. Its content explores the practice of psychology as an art in all its beautiful and complex possibilities. It showcases therapeutic approaches that demystify the therapist’s experience as well as the “patient’s” and honors the literary richness of the human mind as more than a cognitive or evolutionary caricature.

Our understanding of human behavior depends as much on our appreciation of creative self-expression as it does on scientific research. To that end, Psychology Tomorrow Magazine also presents original works of contemporary artists, photographers, designers, writers, poets, choreographers, performance artists, and videographers who examine issues of identity, self-reflection, sexuality, consciousness, relationships, and other essential, controversial themes.

The theme of our upcoming issue (December 2014) will be: AGE-ISM

What does it mean today to “be” a certain age, “act” a certain age, or be part of a certain age “group”? What does it mean to be a “Millennial,” “Baby-Boomer,” “Old-timer,” “Generation X’er,” “Tween,” or one of the multitude of other age-oriented classifications society has established for understanding age as a part of the psyche?

How do perceptions of our “age” or someone else’s “age” reflect our overall psychology, and how is this reflected through the lenses of psychology and art?

Submissions will be accepted for the following issue beginning October 15th, 2014.

Submissions will be due by December 1st, 2014.

We also publish a blog that is not theme-focused. You can submit other writing relevant to our mission to be considered for our blog.
