Wendy Hind - Portraits-8 (2).jpg

tiny poetry project story

After her son was born with a life-threatening congenital heart condition, Wendy Hind, Ph.D., J.D., began using poetry and essay as a form of  narrative medicine to connect with others through issues of health and healing. She is the founder and curator of the tiny poetry project - short poems posted weekly as medicine for the soul.

Wendy's tiny poems are also available for wholesale purchase as notecards and postcards. Printed on locally sourced handcrafted artisan wildflower paper the cards are beautifully designed to be framed or planted. They can also be found in select stores across the country.

Wendy is also a former university vice president, professor, policy advisor, and attorney. She has published health related poems and essays in several journals including, The Healing Muse, Blood and Thunder, and Hektoen International.


Her Poem, "My Tattoos," was featured on New York public radio and is included in a chapbook by the same name. Wendy conducts narrative medicine workshops, is a moving speaker, and contributor to various poetry and medical humanities blogs and podcasts.
