Humanism in the Health Sciences


Call for submissions. Theme Unmuted. Deadline November 1, 2020.


WesternU’s Humanism in the Health Sciences magazine invites you to submit your works of art for the 2019-20 issue!

The updated theme for this year is: Unmuted.

Express your thoughts and experiences about online learning, COVID-19, social distancing, social justice, and so much more. As we continue to adapt and persevere in our new reality, NO voice will be left muted as we rediscover humanism in this new world. We would love to hear from you, be it in the form of poetry, stories (fiction and non-fiction), essays, photos, or fine art.




Arts have the ability to comfort, provoke thought, connect us to each other, and to help us heal during this time of uncertainty and upheaval; they are a reflection of our culture, identity and the times in which we live. This unique magazine has always stood apart as a place to reflect upon and share the art of medicine and the humanistic principles that guide this university’s mission.

As we are transitioning the submission process, and likely the next publication, to an online format, the submission deadline for the 2019-20 issue of HHS has been delayed until Fall 2020. We apologize for the delay, but sincerely hope to give our authors and artists time to reflect and share.
