Which poem do you turn to at a moment of personal crisis? Bring in and share your Emergency Poem, the words you turn to in times of hardship. It might offer solace, insight, breathing space, or points the way forward. Haven't got a poem picked out? Come discover one! Participants will leave this session with a chance to write and reflect on the evening's poems, a fully stocked emergency poetry kit, and a deeper understanding of how to incorporate poetry into the practice of narrative medicine.
