Breathing Life Into Stories: A Prose Workshop
Few experience the human story quite the way physicians do, for they see us at our most vulnerable and our most valiant. This interactive workshop will explore the stories each of us has to tell, from both a medical and/or human perspective, and present techniques for crafting vivid, compelling prose that leaps off the page.

To register please call 210-301-4388.
