Call for Submissions: Becoming a Doctor

For a collection to be published by W. W. Norton, Creative Nonfiction is seeking new essays written by physicians and therapists. The essays should depict experiences of “becoming a doctor” and could explore periods of growth and enlightenment, moments of transition, or realizations that one’s maturation as a doctor had been achieved. Essays might also explore periods of doubt and struggle for clarity, or incidents of deep disappointment and disillusionment.

The objective is to capture the frustrations and triumphs of the healing art by encouraging doctors to recall and recreate the most salient and significant moments of their professional lives.

Essays must be vivid and dramatic; they should combine a strong and compelling narrative with a significant element of research or information. We’re looking for well-written prose, rich with detail and a distinctive voice.

Submissions should be approximately 3,000 – 4,000 words. Please send submissions, accompanied by a cover letter with complete contact information, to:

Creative Nonfiction
Attn: Becoming a Doctor
5501 Walnut Street, Suite 202
Pittsburgh, PA 15232

Postmark deadline May 31, 2008.

Please email questions to information@creativenonfiction.org
