PULSE Is Accepting Poetry Submissions! Deadline: Sept. 15, 2010

Dear Pulse Readers,

We are delighted to let you know that we are ready to accept poetry submissions for the coming year! We invite you to submit your poems from now until September 15, at which time we will review every submission and select those that will appear in Pulse between November 2010 and October 2011.

Here are some guidelines:
You may submit up to three poems for consideration;
  • Each poem may be up to two pages in length (but shorter is perfectly fine!);
  • The subject matter should be related to illness experiences and/or healthcare;
  • We welcome submissions from patients, family members, students and health professionals;
  • We prefer poems depicting personal events; and
  • Most of all, we want good poems that help us understand illness, health and everything in between.
We invite you to visit our Archives so that you can leaf through poetry that has appeared in past issues of Pulse.

When you're ready to submit a poem, please review and follow our Submission Guidelines carefully. This will allow us to consider your submission blindly--that is, without the reviewer knowing who the poet is--something we insist upon.

We look forward to receiving and reading your submissions!

With warm regards,

Judy Schaefer RNC, MA and Johanna Shapiro PhD
