Sibel Ozcelik and Farrah Alkhaleel
Co-Editors of Stylus
and the Perelman School of Medicine are pleased to announce the Fifth Annual Call for short stories, essays, poetry, op/eds, visual arts, photographs and proposals for special issues.
Founded in 2010, the journal is a peer-reviewed literary and art journal with an emphasis on the medical humanities. Issued annually in both online and print versions, the journal is based in UPENN, and has distinguished itself for its interdisciplinary purview, unifying the overarching goals of public health, medicine, and social justice. By sharing healthcare professionals interpersonal experiences through literature and art, we give a voice to medicine and science. Past and prospective authors and artists include professors, outstanding and prize-winning scholars, physicians, nurses, dentists, social workers, health lawyers, public health advocates, nutritionists, psychologists and even undergraduates who are just beginning their journey in the health care field. Regardless, every voice deserves to be heard and to be valued.
We invite you to share your story and/or art.
