A healthcare provider’s keen sense of observation and discernment are critical skills in the healthcare environment, yet these same strengths can also be the source of self care and expression. This workshop will focus on creative writing as a reflective and creative outlet for healthcare professionals. Participants will explore different forms and strategies to generate new writing based on their experiences in and out of the profession. No formal training is required. Writers of all levels are welcome!

If this workshop is full when you try to register, please email info@inprinthouston.org to join the waiting list and put Houston Methodist in the subject line.
