CHEST Journal, the official publication of the American College of Chest Physicians, seeks poetry submissions.
Poems should not exceed 350 words, should not have been previously published, and should relate to concerns of health-care providers, patients and families, and medicine. Poems that have been previously published will be returned to the authors.
Submissions to the Pectoriloquy Section should be sent via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for review and preliminary acceptance by the Section Editor, Michael Zack, MD, FCCP. Authors of poems that Dr. Zack has approved will be asked to submit the final version to ScholarOne Manuscripts. Authors will be required to complete an Author Agreement form transferring copyright to CHEST. They will also be asked to provide two or three sentences about themselves and about their poem. Final acceptance for publication rests with the Editor in Chief.
All poems published in CHEST are free online, with PDF versions available for downloading.
