PHYSICIANS, POETS, PATIENTS: CREATIVE WRITING FOR CLINICIANS + OTHERS

**********Learn ways to develop voice, narrative, and meaning in a medical memoir*********

Instructor: Donna Bulseco

This writing workshop will focus on the techniques of close reading, responsive writing, and the analysis of students' current work during each session. Students will be introduced to memoirs, poetry, creative non-fiction, and graphic narratives by writers such as Elizabeth Bishop, Byers Shaw, Marry Karr, Lillian Ross, Ian Williams, MK Czerwiec, and Atul Gawande. Their texts will serve as examples of the many ways of finding voice, narrative, and meaning when writing about personal experiences. Each week, students will do structured in-class writing to a prompt. The goal of the workshop will be to complete an essay, poem, or graphic narrative to review and send to a literary journal for consideration.

This workshop takes place at Bowery Poetry Club on the following Sundays:

February 21st 12PM-2PM February 28th 12PM-2PM March 6th 11AM-2PM March 13th 11AM-2PM
