Art, writing and photos welcomed for 2020 edition of Wild Onions journal

Wild Onions, a publication for the literary and visual arts, welcomes submissions of original, not previously published literary, artistic or photographic work on all topics for its 2020 edition. Faculty and staff (both clinical and non-clinical), patients, families, students and volunteers associated with Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine are welcome to submit up to five items per person.

Deadline for submissions is Jan. 15.

The 2020 theme for Wild Onions is “The Voice Within Us.” The journal describes the theme as follows:

“Air moving through our lungs and vocal cords create speech and sound – revealing The Voice Within Us. Human voices talk, sing, laugh and cry. During our silence we can also express ourselves. Different tone, pitch, quality and volume bring meaning to our communication. Our stories exist behind every piece of artwork, poem, short story, song, lyric, memoir, comic strip and photograph. We hope that through this special issue of Wild Onions, you share your own voice and listen to those with something to say.”
