Editorial Focus: 

The Barefoot Review publishes original written work by people who have or have had physical difficulties in their lives, from cancer to seizures, Alzheimer's to Lupus. It is also a place for caretakers, families, significant others and friends to write about their experiences and relationships to the person. They are a vital part to being able to live with an illness. Writing can be a tremendous source of healing and allow difficult feelings and ideas to be expressed, verbalizing feelings that may be subconscious.

Tips From the Editor: 

We are looking for submissions from two categories of people: 1) those who currently have or have survived a serious health issue and 2) those in their lives—caregivers, families, significant others, friends, doctors, nurses, social workers, therapists, anyone who has experiences to share. The topic of submissions should relate to or concern aspects of dealing with illness: living, surviving or loss. We accept submissions year-round of previously unpublished work. Submit up to five poems or a short prose piece per edition. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable. Any style is acceptable, from personal tragedy to humorous reflection.
