The Healing Art of Writing: Volume One
Joan Baranow, Brian Dolan, and David Watts
The pieces in The Healing Art of Writing: Volume One originated a the conference of this name that brought together caregivers and patients who share a passion for writing about the mysterious forces of illness and recovery. A belief shared among all contributors is that being cured of a disease is not the same as being healed, and that writing poetry and prose brings us to a place of healing. Our subject is the body, our medical experiences widely diverse, our goal to express through literature what happens when a physical or mental anguish disrupts our lives.
