New Latin for "the brain," Encephalon is a youth-led art and literary journal. It is devoted to publishing and honoring the voice, craft, and originality of aspiring writers, artists, and scientists. We publish original fiction, non-fiction, poetry, research essays, and all forms of visual art.

'The Empty Throne of Mental Illness'


Established in 2023, the reputation of Encephalon arises from its place as a home for the intersection of neuroscience-based work and other academic disciplines. Our award-winning editors review submissions from more than 50 countries. Their voice-driven pieces ultimately create vibrant issues that attract over 20,000 readers worldwide. In addition, Encephalon strives to combat "neurophobia," celebrate neurodiversity, and raise mental health awareness by fostering active discourse for a general audience. With a team-based approach towards multidisciplinary publication, there is something here for everyone to enjoy.
