1. POETRY HEALS WORKSHOPS at NJ Hospitals
    
Poetry Heals—Literature & Medicine Celebrates National Poetry Month

POETRY HEALS WORKSHOPS will be lead by poets from CavanKerry Press. These 
workshops will give healthcare workers the chance to create their own poetry as 
a means of healing themselves and to consider how poetry can be a way to 
understand the experiences of others. These workshops will take place at Cooper 
University Hospital, Camden; Morristown Medical Center, Morristown; Newton 
Medical Center, Newton; Overlook Hospital, Summit; and, UMDNJ, Newark.
