Spring Writers' Night at Bay Path University - Narrative Medicine: Trauma, Illness, and Writing to Heal with Charles Coe, Áine Greaney, and Allan Hunter

During this extended period of extreme social isolation, many of us turn to the power of stories to remind us we are not alone. Narrative Medicine, or writing about the medical or trauma journey, takes that power one step further, using writing as a way to tell the deeper stories that help us heal. Hear a panel of three celebrated writers and Bay Path MFA faculty in Narrative Medicine--Charles Coe, Áine Greaney, and Allan Hunter--read intimate selections from recent work; share their wisdom about writing and healing; and answer questions about how to tell your own medical, grief, or trauma story.
