Reflective and Creative Writing for Healthcare Clinicians and Educators

January 10 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Fostering Narrative Competence will focus on developing the skills of close reading and reflective and creative writing through discussion of published work, sharing student writing in a guided, workshop setting, and a selection of writing and creativity exercises.  The course is open to writers at all levels interested in working in a variety of genres (fiction, memoir, poetry , drama, non-fiction, etc.) and is being held at the University of Toronto.

Fostering Narrative Competence is intended to nurture and aid health care practitioners who wish to devote time and attention to their reading and writing but lack the support of an engaged creative community to support their efforts.

The course will consist of 8 sessions between Jan 10, 2018-May 2, 2018 and will be led by Damian Tarnopolsky, the author of Goya’s Dog, a finalist for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and the Amazon.ca First Novel Award, and the short fiction collection Lanzmann and Other Stories, which was nominated for the ReLit Award.

Space is limited to 15 participants. If you have questions, please contact Farah Friesen at FriesenF@smh.ca
