The Healing Muse
The Healing Muse is the annual journal of literary and visual art published by SUNY Upstate Medical University's Center for Bioethics & Humanities. We welcome fiction, poetry, narratives, essays, memoirs and visual art, particularly but not exclusively focusing on themes of medicine, illness, disability and healing.

The public is invited to come and hear our writers read their work and then meet them afterwards while celebrating with a very fabulous cake.
This is our first double issue, a fitting way to acknowledge fifteen years of growth and visibility. We are proud to recognize the work of our cover artist, Ted Meyer who is also Artist in Residence at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. Ted’s work continues and furthers our conversation about illness, wellness, health, and healing.
