WRITING THE MEDICAL EXPERIENCE
July 27-August 2, 2008

This intensive weeklong program in the literature of illness and recovery is open to doctors, nurses, patients, health care professionals and families of patients. Writers with a special interest in medical subjects are also welcome. Applications will be considered in two categories: poetry and prose. Acceptance into the program is based on the quality of the application sample. Previous participants need not submit their work.

The medical experience can lead to some of life’s deepest moments and is thus a rich source of subject matter for literature but it is often difficult to write about. Bringing together individuals with a shared interest in a literature of the body, along with our diverse ways of handling the body’s challenges will better equip us for writing the medical experience.

The conference will consist of lectures, workshops, panels, readings and informal gatherings on the campus of Sarah Lawrence College just north of New York City.
