Ether Arts, the literary and visual arts magazine of the Ohio State College of Medicine, is officially calling for submissions!  This is a magazine written and published by medical students and other health care professionals at OSU.  It is meant to showcase who we are beyond medicine, so we accept unpublished work from all disciplines including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drawings, photography, and painting.  Also, we accept work both with and without medical themes.  For examples of previous years’ magazines see above.


The deadline for submissions is NOVEMBER 30, 2017. All entries should be submitted as attached files to ether.arts.magazine@gmail.com with a subject line of "Ether Arts Submission" and the following naming convention: "AuthorName_Year/StaffPosition_Title"


Prose should be submitted in Word format with Times New Roman font, 12 point, single spaced, with a maximum of 8 pages. Poetry should be submitted in Word format with Times New Roman font, 12 point, with a maximum of 40 lines. Visual art should be submitted as TIFs or in RAW photo format. There is a maximum of three total submissions per individual. 

Editors will correspond with authors and artists whose pieces are selected for publication in order to facilitate further formatting, proofing, and refinement. Ether Arts will award $25 gift cards to the creators of the top prose, poetry, and visual art pieces. In addition, the winners will be recognized at the Spring Art Show reception.


Please let us know if you have any questions! You can email any of the Writer's Group leadership (listed below) for more information!


We look forward to your submissions!
