We appreciate your interest in writing with Endnotes!

Submissions should be current and relevant, intelligent without being pretentious, and witty without being biting. Our style is ‘casual academic.’ To us, that means articles that are approachable and easy to read, yet well-written and evidence based. We hope to intrigue curious people!

Why write for Endnotes?

  • Be a part of the conversation that informs hospice and palliative care practice.
  • Potential networking opportunities.

Posts we love:

  • Opinion articles about current topics.
  • Entertaining and helpful journal article reviews.
  • Experience of doing research and what was learned.
  • Descriptions of educational or clinical innovations and what was learned.

We avoid very specific stories about one case and what it meant to you as a clinician.

Peer Review:

Our approach to peer-review is to provide editorial guidance to authors through the editing process. We believe everyone deserves an editor! This means that if your submission is appropriate, you will be assigned an editor who will provide compassionate/constructive feedback, and work with you to improve and clarify the submission.


While we do not have a strict word count, most posts will be less than 1000 words. References or citations should be linked in the document. Please avoid acronyms. If there is a conflict of interest, it must be disclosed.

When submitting an article, please include your name, credentials, social media handle, and a byline (eg. Dame Cicely Saunders is a nurse, social worker, physician, and writer. She founded St Christopher’s Hospice, the world’s first of its kind.)

To submit, or to pitch an idea, send us an email at editors@endnotes.org.
