Virtual Creative Writing Group For Residents 🗓

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! Now, more than ever, is a time for us to hone skills for self-expression.

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 hours in length.

We welcome residents/fellows from any specialty, 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.

Given the current public health landscape, our next meeting will be held over Zoom on Monday, April 20th, 2020 at 7:00pm. For this meeting, we will be joined by a very accomplished medical writer and current CMAJ Humanities Editor, Barbara Sibbald.
