Words & Brushes free short story contest, Psychology Tomorrow wants submissions, Yellow Mama wants horror etc and Cargo wants travel narratives

Psychology Tomorrow Magazine. reveres the intersection of psychology and art. Its content explores the practice of psychology as an art and also presents original works of contemporary artists, photographers, designers, writers, poets, choreographers, performance artists, and filmmakers who examine issues of identity, self-reflection, sexuality, consciousness, relationships, and other essential, controversial themes.
The theme of Issue #19 (December 2015) will be: Psychedelics & Psychotropics
For our 19th issue, Psychology Tomorrow Magazine plans to explore the dichotomous world of medicinal substance versus recreational substance, and what it means to take intentional trips for healing and suffer unintentional trips through the side effects of “advanced” medicine.
Consider the following possibilities:
·         Have you taken a psychedelic trip that changed your worldview?
·         Have you taken a psychotropic medication that offered just the help you sought?
·         Have you ever taken a trip while also maintaining a course of psychotropic medication?
·         Have you experienced an unexpected “fringe” benefit from a prescribed psychotropic medication?
Deadline November 30, 2015.
