Humanitas Publication

Humanitas is a literary journal of the Medical University of South Carolina.  It is comprised of works presented by the MUSC community, which includes students, staff, and faculty.

Humanitas is calling ALL members of the MUSC community from all colleges/departments/professions to submit their works of art and literature for the upcoming XXIII volume. If you are unaware of what Humanitas is, it is a campus-wide publication that features paintings, drawings, photography, prose, poetry, music, etc. from all members of the MUSC community who wish to submit their work. Each submission will then be judged by a diverse editorial board who will cast their votes on the submissions; this process will ultimately decide the works that become published. Humanitas features works that are both within the realm of healthcare as well as those pertaining to many other themes or sources of inspiration.

Humanitas Submissions

The deadline to submit for 2019 Humanitas, Volume XXIII, is December 1, 2018.

All MUSC students, staff, and faculty are invited to submit to Humanitas during our open submission period.

Below are the guidelines for submissions. We regret that works not meeting the following criteria may be removed from consideration:

  • For poetry, send 1-3 poems (1500-word maximum).
  • For short fiction and non-fiction, send 1-2 works (1500-word maximum each).
