Published annually in printed form, Voices from the Faculty accepts submissions from all faculty in the School of Medicine at the University of Utah.
Submissions are limited to 55 words in the form of personal narratives or stories, poetry, or a hybrid genre of creative nonfiction. They must relate actual experiences of the author; fictional accounts will not be accepted. The use of creative techniques used in writing fiction–character description, setting, scene, dialogue, and conflict, for instance–is highly recommended. Submissions should be written creatively in a voice that is personal, not didactic or pedantic. Subject matter should address aspects of medical practice, education, and training, including but not limited to: ethical dilemmas, mistakes, challenging emotional situations, tensions between personal and professional sphere, and patient encounters, especially those that are memorable for being inspirational as well as troubling.
Annual print edition: submission deadline March 1, 2020.
