Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal is pleased to invite new writers to contribute to the online publication, which is designed to bring together humanities scholars and students from across institutions and disciplines in a “department without walls.” The site is founded and edited by Arden Hegele, a literary scholar, and Rishi Goyal, a medical doctor.

They are looking for 8-10 writers — both humanities students and scholars and health professionals — whose work intersects with the medical and health humanities to become regular writers for our publication. The commitment is one piece of writing every two months. These pieces can intersect with your research, or be one-off creative explorations. Contributions need not be long (500 to 1,000 words is ideal). Please see the journal site for the kind of work their writers produce, and see the special issue on Covid-19. More information about Synapsis is also available in the document at this link.

To apply, please complete the application form and upload a CV. The deadline to apply for a writing position is August 31, end of day. Questions in the meantime may be directed to our Assistant Editor, Danielle Drees, at
