Sharing Our Stories: Narratives, Poetry, Haiku, and 55 Word Stories. We curate medical humanities pieces that utilize creative writing-narratives, poetry, haiku, or 55 word stories to capture key experiences of wellness, illness, healing the health care system, and/or standout moments in healthcare.
Submissions should not exceed 1000 words and may take the form of a personal narrative, a poem utilizing any format including free verse, haiku, or a 55 word story.
Have a reflection about the pandemic, about health equity, about the care you provide or a favorite patient?
We are looking for your work!
Please share widely with colleagues and learners.
Pieces will be peer reviewed based on fit with the journal mission, use of well-crafted language, and the impact of the narrative. Contact our Department Co-editors Dr. Jo Marie
Reilly (jmre...@usc.edu) or Dr. Hugh Silk (hugh...@umassmemorial.org)
if you have questions.
