Nurse Poets Sought for Magazine Publishing Opportunity

Magazine Seeks Submissions from Nurse Poets

This note forwarded today from CCAHTE liaison, Eastern U.S., Dr. Stephanie Brown Clark, Assistant Professor, Medical Humanities, Centre for Ethics, Humanities and Palliative Care, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

Every issue of RATTLE gathers poems from a specific ethnic, vocational, or social group, comprising a special section of about 20 pages. We're currently seeking submissions from nurse poets for our Winter 2007 issue.

We want...
poems written by nurses -- they don't have to be about nurses. If you're a nurse, submit 3- 5 poems by August 15th, 2007.
We're also seeking ...
essays about the relationship between nursing and/or medicine and poetry -- why are there so many nurse- poets? How does working in this career affect your writing? Does poetry affect how you do your job? If you can write an essay that encompasses both nurses and poetry, we're interested.

Feel free to query first by email
