Reflective Writing for Medical & Healthcare Professionals with Suzanne Edison

This workshop is welcome to anyone who works in healthcare. Students will read work by medical providers and patients and then write about what we notice in our bodies, thoughts, and feelings, creating room for empathy, understanding, and connection.

Our members make our world go round.

Our supporters are the reason why Hugo House can continue to offer amazing free resources to the community. In addition to supporting the literary arts, our members get discounts on event tickets and at local bookstores!
