Medicine and Metaphors: Writing from the Heart, Statewide Prose and Poetry Event

(Arts/Entertainment/Community Events)

September 16 - 2011 Deadline
James Borton

Statewide Medical Humanities Prose and Poetry Event. Open to patients, patients' families, health care providers, health care volunteers who have written about experiences related to illness.

Good medicine is more than a diagnosis and a prescription. Telling one's story about personal illness and injury enables individuals to interpret how this event has affected their lives and the lives of those closest to them. This call for submissions and a narrative pedicine panel are functions of the 2011 Humanities Festival to be held in Sumter, SC October 1-9.

Submissions due September 16.

Cash prizes!

Entrants may submit up to two pieces in each category (prose and poetry). Submissions must be original, previously unpublished, and not under consideration elsewhere.

Maximum length of manuscripts: 50 lines for poetry and 600 words for prose. Submissions exceeding these limits will not be considered. Two printed, double-spaced copies and an electronic copy must be submitted. E-mailed submissions alone will not be accepted.

Include name, address, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address.

Forward to James Borton Arts & Letters Division, University of South Carolina Sumter, 200 Miller Road, Sumter, SC 29150 with subject heading Medical Humanities Program.
