WRAITH INFIRMITY MUSES IS CURRENTLY AN ONLINE JOURNAL
The concept of Wraith Infirmity Muses was spawned in the fall of 2016, the senior year at Salem College of Founding and Senior Editor, Pat Berryhill. A creative writing major and a woman who lives with invisible illness, both physical and mental, she struggled to seek a place where her love of literature and battles with social stigmas associated with invisible illness met. This literary magazine is the birth of an inability to find a place unencumbered by further social impediment. Wraith Infirmity is a place where those who live with invisible illness will be welcome to publish and bring light where none is shed, truth where there is stigma, and a home where there has been none.
How will I know for sure if someone who submits has an invisible illness themselves? I won’t. I will have to accept their word on faith. How could I do otherwise?
Welcome to WIM,
