Call for submissions

The editorial team at Tendon is looking for inspired and informative pieces on the theme of Borders. We welcome creative submissions of up to 2,000 words or visual pieces up to 5 pages long exploring any aspect of Borders that is related to the Medical Humanities. The submission deadline is March 1, 2019. Please reach out with submissions (or questions) to:


The tone of the magazine is above all inclusive; the zine will be read by specialists and non-specialists, and parts of it will be printed off and shared with members of the Baltimore community. The language, style, and tone, therefore, must strike a balance between accessible and thought-provoking.

References should be included only when absolutely necessary. If your piece contains a large number of references, consider editing for accessibility before submitting.

Contributors and readers of Tendon will have roots in diverse fields of experience and expertise; for this reason, writing should be focused on the shared aspects of medical humanities and social medicine, as well as on the pleasure of reading.
