Evanescent: A Journal of Literary Medicine is the journal of the Eakins Writers’ Workshop, which also sponsors the Drs. Theresa and Charles Yeo Writing Prize. The Eakins Writers’ Workshop is supported by the Jefferson Center for Injury Research and Prevention and includes members of the Office for Professional Writing, Publishing, and Communication.

Volume four of Evanescent asked the question: where is our empathy? The Jefferson community responded with brave, honest, and heartbreaking personal stories. We in healthcare bear witness to nearly every emotion of the human experience. 

Evanescent seeks to chronicle, communicate, and celebrate this richness of experience. Submissions are welcomed from all members of the Jefferson community. For inquiries regarding submissions, please email evanescent@jefferson.edu.
