Creative and Reflective Writing for Health Practitioners

The Mudroom is a creative and reflective writing workshop for health professionals. Meetings are held monthly and provide a space to write, read, try out exercises in prose and verse, share work and give feedback. We’ll find inspiration and/or consolation, and help each other along the health humanities road. In between meetings, online sharing will allow for continued collaboration and connection. All are welcome!

Target Audience

This program is designed for health professionals seeking to explore creative and reflective writing, and will also benefit healthcare practitioners from multiple disciplines looking to inform their professional practice with creatively informed approaches.
