Reflexions: The Literary and Fine Arts Journal

Reflexions is the Literary and Fine Arts Journal of Columbia University Irving Medical Center. The journal features poetry, fiction, narratives, photography, and art based on both health topics and non-health themes. We accept submissions from students, faculty, staff, and alumni across the medical center, who are also welcome to be part of the journal's selection, editing, and layout process.

Reflexions is published on an annual basis and widely distributed on the medical center's campus. We accept submissions of up to three works of poetry, prose, and/or visual art (including photography).
