Word Medicine is dedicated to observations about the process of using writing and story and poetry in the service of healing. Here you will find reports from my own “laboratory”–the workshops I facilitate, as well as my own writing process, and my struggle with chronic illness. The blog is meant to be a forum, a place where those engaged in this work can come to compare notes and struggles, as well as a resource. I look forward to a rich and interactive site!
