Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal invites new writers! Synapsis is an online publication 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.

We are looking for 10-12 PhD candidates, junior faculty, and health professionals whose work intersects with the medical 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 our writers produce. In particular, we recommend looking at our special issues and browsing our various sections for the range of topics we address. More information about Synapsis is also available in this document.

To apply, please complete the application form and upload a CV. The deadline to apply for a writing position is August 19, end of day. Questions in the meantime may be directed to our managing editor, Lilith Todd, at
