About Bellevue Literary Review:
Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in the United States, has been witness to nearly 270 years of human drama. In this tradition we have created the Bellevue Literary Review, a forum for illuminating humanity and human experience. The BLR is published by the Department of Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center. We invite submissions of previously unpublished works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry that touch upon relationships to the human body, illness, health and healing. We encourage creative interpretation of these themes.
