The Journal of Narrative Visions (JNV) is a newly established online journal that accepts narrative medicine and creative pieces related to ophthalmology, optometry, and vision care. We are now open for submissions including non-fiction, fiction, poetry, and artwork.
The next deadline to submit — and be published in our Summer 2018 Edition — is August 15th, 2018. See below for details!
We welcome submissions from patients, caregivers, ophthalmologists, optometrists, and other healthcare workers including medical students and residents from all over the world.
Considerations for Acceptance
The JNV encourages submissions that reflect on personal experiences within the realm of vision care. Topics include, but are not limited to: healthcare for the blind, the effect of technology on restoring eyesight, global health missions, and the role of ophthalmologists in identifying systemic illness (diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disease, etc.).
This journal is funded in part by the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
