From the Editor

The Healing Muse is the annual journal of literary and visual art published by SUNY Upstate Medical University’s Center for Bioethics & Humanities. Call for Submissions period runs from September 1 through May 1. We welcome fiction, poetry, narratives, essays, memoirs, drawings, photography, and graphic art, particularly but not exclusively focusing on themes of medicine and healing.

Editor Deirdre Neilen notes on our latest issue: “The book you hold represents the work and dreams and sometimes nightmares of Muse 14’s talented writers and artists. During our submission period, we read and re-read with delight; I often find notes from the staff on various pieces: “loved it,” “could not stop reading,” “such a different take on this one.” The great strength of The Healing Muse is that subject matter and style coalesce in a paradox: while each piece is unique, each one reaffirms the universality of our shared journey through this temporal world of health, illness, and everything in-between.”

She continues to write, “Here is another paradox: the journal feels so light in my hands, yet it contains the weight of complex histories and the impossible questions they provoke. Why is this happening? Who are we now after this experience? How can we go on after such alteration or loss? Science and medicine offer imperfect answers to these questions; our writers and our artists head down a different path. I am grateful to them for sharing their work; I am hoping that you too will be happy to follow them. They lead us to a universal and essential conclusion—we matter, each of us matters.”
