Writer-in-residence, Michelle Berberet, offers weekly writing workshops to dozens of students from across the United States and Europe through Eventbrite. Her workshops begin with a carefully selected poem or prompt to which guests respond. Then the students share their work with each other. Many of the poems begun in Michelle’s workshop go on to be revised and submitted for reading at the AHP’s annual Poetry CafĂ©, and publication in the AHP’s annual literary magazine, Lombardi Voices.

Writing workshop includes Georgetown University undergraduate students, staff, and patients
