Subject: [HealthHum] A Call for medical humanities stories and poems
To: heal...@simplelists.com <heal...@simplelists.com>

We are looking or your stories, poems, haiku at the Families, System and Health journal. 

Sharing Our Stories is the name of our section of the journal.

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.
