Publication in Medical Literary Messenger

I am pleased to report that my poem “Psalm for Anorexia” has been published in the Spring/Summer issue of Medical Literary Messenger, which is published by Virginia Commonwealth University’s School of Medicine.

Similar to Bellevue Literary Review and Hospital Drive, Medical Literary Messenger “aims to promote humanism and the healing arts through prose, poetry, and photography.” The Spring/Summer issue is available to read online or download as a PDF here.

  1. Your poem is really powerful and moving, Liz. I thought the bones imagery was a beautiful device to accentuate the way of thinking of a sufferer of that insidious disease. Could I courteously suggest that you put the poem into the post? I don’t think most readers of any blog will use a link to find a poem. If it had been any blog other than yours, I wouldn’t have. I hope this is not a misplaced suggestion.

  2. Thank you for your comment, Kate. I’m relatively new to blogging, so I’m still learning about readers’ behavior. I’ll need to hold off on including the poem in the post, based on the agreement with the journal.

  3. Liz, your poem is very moving and insightful. It has given me an understanding of this horrible disease. I feel I have more empathy now, with sufferers. This makes Psalm for Anorexia a powerful poem. It was interesting perusing the other poems in the journal. Thank you for sharing this and congratulations on getting it published.
