Drum roll please…
It’s my honour to announce the following top winners of UBC Medicine’s 1st ever celebration of the written word – the Art As Adjuvant Writing Competition 2014:
1. The Hidden Cost of Medicine by Patricia (“Trish”) Caddy; SMP 2016 – Prose
2. Blood by Daniel Essau; SMP 2016 – Prose
3. Untitled by Arsalan Hassan; VFMP 2016 – Poetry
Thank you for all those that submitted original, inspiring, sad, funny, hopeful and incredibly creative pieces. It made judging quite difficult, but ultimately demonstrated what talented artists we have amongst us.
Here’s Arsalan’s 3rd place untitled piece:
Words! Find your duty relieved.
Commands the poet, ironically–
relieved to find victory in concession.
Overwhelmed by how much he has gained
through theft, and forfeit.
