Resident Creative Writing at UofT-next meeting

University of Toronto Residents’ Creative Writing Group

Are you interested in stretching your creative muscles? Looking to refine a creative work for publication?
Or perhaps just to inject a dose of humanities into your medical practice?

The University of Toronto Residents’ Creative Writing Group is here to help!

We comprise of a group of residents and fellows at the University of Toronto interested in sharing and improving our writing. Meetings are held approximately once a month, 2-3 hours in length.

We welcome house staff from any discipline, and with an interest in any genre of writing (narrative medicine pieces, poetry, fiction, memoir, creative non-fiction) as long as it’s written to be read.

Our next meeting is on Monday, April 15th at 7:00 p.m. at the By the Way Café (400 Bloor St W).

For this meeting, we will be joined by staff facilitator Dr. Brian Goldman. Dr. Goldman is the author of multiple books as well as the host of CBC Radio’s ‘White Coat, Black Art’. When he is not hosting his radio show, or writing, he works as an Emergency Physician at Mount Sinai Hospital.

If you wish to attend or would like more information, please join our facebook group ( or email me at

Please email me directly if you are interested in submitting a piece to be workshopped at our next meeting!

Happy writing!
