Details: All entries must be original, unpublished writing intended for publishing in the Kentucky Doc Magazine. Do not put your name on the essay. Judges, physicians from the LMS Editorial Board, are blinded to authors. Instead, include a separate cover letter with name, entry category (active physician, resident, or U.K. medical student) essay title, a two or three sentence bio, a professional picture, and contact information (email, phone, address). The bio and picture will go with your article if published. Submit your essay in Microsoft Word format.
You have 800-1,500 words and the deadline is March 3, 2019. The deadline has been extended till March 10 for medical students. The LMS Editorial Board judges will consider excellence in expression, creativity, readability, clarity, and the power of your message. These are essays, not research papers, write from what you know and feel.
The winning essays will be announced at the May 14, 2019 LMS Dinner Meeting at the U.K. Hilary J. Boone Center. All essay participants will be notified if they won or not by March 22, 2019.
