VICC offers creative writing course for cancer caregivers


Health care professionals who care for cancer patients can experience strong emotions with limited opportunities to cope with or express those emotions.

This month, Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and its partners are offering a series of free writing seminars for those health care professionals. “Express Yourself: Creative Writing Series” will provide participants the opportunity to create original writing in a supportive and collaborative setting. No writing experience is required.

The sessions will be held each Wednesday in September from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at The Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy, 1801 Edgehill Ave. The course will be led by a 2015-16 Curb Creative Writing Fellow at Vanderbilt University.

The program is a collaboration of VICC, the Vanderbilt Oncology Expressive Arts Committee and the Curb Center for Art, Enterprise and Public Policy.
