aims to gather undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty
and anyone who is interested in writing and narrative medicine to
discuss and experience the ways in which medicine, narrative, literature
and art inform one another in creative and useful ways. Through writing,
sharing and discussing our own narratives, art and ideas in the informal,
intellectually-stimulating space of the Kelly Writers House, we explore
how narrative, art and medicine connect in our own lives and how we
might be able to make use of these relationships. Word.Doc is especially
dedicated to open, seminar-style reading and discussion groups for
interested students, faculty and affiliates from across the university.
Members of Word.Doc will join a listserv and are invited and encouraged
to participate in our discussion groups, which will be held
at 6:00 pm in the Arts Café of the Kelly Writers House, and to join
us for our other featured events, guest presentations and programs!
To join our program, to join our listserv or for further information
