Plums in the Icebox:
A Monthly Creative Writing Workshop for Health Practitioners
Hosted by :
Shane Neilson MD, PHD Assistant Clinical Professor (Adjunct), McMaster University, and Damian Tarnopolsky PhD, Writer-in-Residence, Health, Arts and Humanities Program, University of Toronto
Fee of C$200 for six sessions.
Plums in the Icebox is an ongoing creative writing workshop for health practitioners. Each month we meet via Zoom in a small group to share work, do some writing, give some feedback and -most of all- reconnect with our writing and reading. In between meetings we do more of the same via chat. Led by an acclaimed poet who is a practicing family physician and a novelist and playwright with long experience teaching narrative medicine, Plums in the Icebox is a supportive community for health practitioners looking to deepen and improve their creative and reflective writing. The ethos is craft-based. The approach is collaborative. The style is informal. But the stakes are high.
