CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Psychiatric Times’ Writing Contest!

We are seeking your real-life story that can move, teach, and inspire other psychiatrists.

We invite you to share your story of a  memorable experience or encounter with  one of your patients (fictionalized so that  the patient cannot be recognized) that you believe ultimately made you a better  psychiatrist.

Your story could win:

Glory and fame! (Your essay, headshot, and bio published in Psychiatric Times and posted on PsychiatricTimes.com)

• $200 (first prize)!
   $150 (second prize)!
   $100 (third prize)!   

Here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing (but don’t let these limit your thinking).

Consider a time when you:
• Thought you were in over your head
• Made the wrong choice
• Made a hard choice            
• Connected with a patient in a unique way
• Made an unexpected emotional connection with a patient
• Treated a patient in an unorthodox-but ultimately successful-way

How to enter:
• Send us your story in a Word document (800 to 1200 words).
• Please include your name and contact  email on your submission.
• Email your essay to  Editor@PsychiatricTimes.com and put “ENTRY” in the subject head.            
All entries must be received on or  before May 2, 2016.
