Centre for Faculty Development News and Events – Narrative Competence Course

Fostering Narrative Competence: Reflective and Creative Writing for Clinicians and Educators

with Damian Tarnopolsky Phd.

Fostering Narrative Competence is an 8-session course which will focus on developing the skills of close reading and reflective and creative writing through discussion of published work, sharing student writing in a guided, workshop setting, and a selection of writing and creativity exercises.  The course is open to writers at all levels interested in working in a variety of genres (fiction, memoir, poetry , drama, non-fiction, etc.).  

Fostering Narrative Competence is intended to nurture and aid health care practitioners who wish to devote time and attention to their reading and writing but lack the support of an engaged creative community to support their efforts.  

There is a $500 fee and registration is required. Registration closes Dec 15, 2017. There is a maximum capacity for 15 participants.
