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 #tinypoetryproject - short poems posted weekly as medicine for the soul.
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 soon to be published 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.
