I recently stumbled again upon ARS Medica: A Journal of Medicine, The Arts, and Humanities. If you think about it, it’s a pretty cool idea for a journal and right up my alley.
For you medical professionals, they have opened up the 2013 Humanities Poetry and Prose Contest. Here’s the basic info:
Open to all health profession students, researchers, residents, fellows, health care practitioners and faculty working or studying in Canada.
1. Deadline: Monday March 18, 2013.
2. Parameters: All works must be previously unpublished and relate to medical humanities in the broadest sense. Poetry, limited to two submissions per person. Prose works, limited to 1 per person, can be any style (e.g., creative nonfiction, fiction, essay etc.)
If you live in the Toronto area, ARS Medica also has movie viewings and writing workshops. Pass this on to all of the medical professionals in your life. They can probably use it.
