PLEASE REVIEW & EDIT We welcome your Prose nonfiction submission. Use this form to submit an attached Word document.

If you are not currently subscribed to Pulse, please subscribe. (While we offer Pulse free of charge, we also encourage subscribers to “energize” their subscriptions with a voluntary donation.)

If you are writing about a patient, please read the Terms and Conditions and be sure to change identifying information.

If you are writing about a sensitive subject, it is possible to have your piece published anonymously. Check the appropriate box and let our editors know your wishes in the main text.

After submitting your piece, you’ll receive an automatic email acknowledgment; within seven days you’ll be hearing from one of our More Voices editors.

All accepted pieces are edited, sometimes vigorously–for length, flow, clarity and style–and published on our website within a week. If our editing is not to your liking, you are free to request that your piece be taken down, with no hard feelings. Unfortunately, we are unable to negotiate individual Prose edits, so we ask that you please accept (or reject) all our edits as a package. If your piece has not been accepted, we will notify you via email.

If you have questions about your submission or problems using this form, use the Contact Us form to query our Prose editors.

We look forward to reviewing your piece.  Please note that pieces submitted here are only considered for the Prose section of Pulse.
