In May, my sister Hannah and I were published in Medical Literary Messenger: An Artistic Voice for the Healing Arts. We put together an artistic collaboration of photography and poetry called “Short Sisters,” exploring Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia (SED), a bone condition we were born with. We combined poetry and photography to provide a portrait of how SED affects the body and how the condition presents itself differently, even in sisters.

Medical Literary Messenger explores medicine and healing arts, which is exactly where this project fits. The journal tries to publish the perspectives of patients, health care providers and physicians. It accepts submissions of prose, poetry and images, including photography, drawings and other forms of visual expression.
