This workshop is open to all, beginner to professional, writers, patients, and people in medicine. The illness, disease, or condition involves what the writer, a loved one, or a patient has suffered or is suffering. I welcome physicians, nurses, mental and public health professionals, writers, scholars, and all those interested in the intersection of narrative, medicine, and healing.
