Lifelines is a literary journal published by Dartmouth Medical School.[1]

The journal is sponsored by the Trustees of Dartmouth College[2] and features work by current and former students, current writers and artists.[3]

Precedence for inclusion in the journal is given to Medical school alum, but exceptions are sometimes made for distinguished work. The journal aims to address a lack of discourse among science and the arts, while recognizing the challenge in combining the two.[4]


The fiction, poetry and book reviews in the journal also aim to reflect the multitude of experiences with illness and death.[5][6][7] [8]

Initially an online publication, the journal is now published in hard copy format and cataloged by the Dartmouth College library.[9]

The journal has featured work by Guggenheim fellows, Dartmouth faculty, winners of the William Carlos Williams Award, as well as new authors. Fiction from the journal has been included in the Best American Short Stories series.[10][11][12]

In 2013 a short story featured in the journal by Aaron Sommers[13] was performed as a one-act play at The Players' Ring Theater in Portsmouth.[14][15][16]


Editor in Chief: Jessica Linden. Managing Editor: James Washington, Jr.. Reviewers: Jonathan Ross, MD, Phyllis Katz, PhD., Stefan Balan, MD, Susan, Pepin, MD and William Toms, MD.
