Humanism in the Health Sciences
Founded in 1996, Humanism in the Health Sciences magazine is a student-led literary and arts journal for Western University of Health Sciences. We accept non-fiction essays, fiction short stories, poetry, fine art, photography, audio, video and animation submissions from our whole WesternU community. Our mission is to cultivate a diversity of minds, cultures, experiences and points of view in order to enhance the humanistic principles that guide this university’s mission.
2022 Theme: Onward
Art helps us heal and reflect on our journeys while we look ahead to the future. We want you to share your nonfiction essays, short stories, poems, photography, and artwork. We also accept short videos, audio files, and animated images. We are also excited to announce that we are now accepting and publishing submissions in Spanish…
Humanism invites you to share your journeys and what drives you onward.
