The Turnings Project

The Turnings Project is a mindshare initiative started by Anna Jeavons in 2020. Writers with lived experience of mental illness are invited to produce a short piece of prose that documents a turning point in their life. These are often marked by major life events such as diagnoses, decisions, birthdays, births, tragedies, or realisations and epiphanies.

Turnings Project submissions should be no more than 1000 words, and sent to for our Online Editor to review and exhibit on the site.
