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. Wendy conducts narrative medicine workshops, is a moving speaker, and contributor to various poetry and medical humanities blogs and podcasts. She is the founder and curator of the tiny poetry project - medicine for the soul.
Every Tuesday, Wendy posts short poems. Many of the poems are available for wholesale purchase as beautiful notecards. Printed on locally sourced handcrafted artisan wildflower paper the cards are elegantly designed to be framed or planted. They can also be found in select boutiques, spas, hospitals, and wellness centers across the country.
Wendy is 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, The Examined Life, and Hektoen International.
Her Poem, "My Tattoos," was featured on New York public radio and is included in her poetry book by the same name.
