We want your “in the midst” moments. WHILST is a publication that focuses on the process and mentality of being within change. Change helps us adapt and grow as people and we want to know what that looks like for you. When you arrived at your destination, were your expectations dashed when it didn’t look and feel like the photograph? Or are you trying to figure out how to make yourself sound impressive and original for your 100th interview? Did you have an unexpected interaction with a stranger that shook your foundational understanding of the world around you?

Whilst is seeking to publish pieces that uniquely express the similar struggles we all face. We want to hear how you’ve processed–what has mentally helped you carry on? We accept submissions in the following categories: fiction, poetry, memoir, travel writing, and scripts. We also are accepting art for our art gallery in the forms of short films, paintings, drawings, and photography. We cannot wait to see your pieces!
