What Participants Say About The Moving Pens

  • The Moving Pens offers writers at all levels and in many genres a safe, fun way to build skills. I was amazed to see how quickly a group of students, residents, faculty and community members built trust. My writing has improved. Thanks, Moving Pens!” ~Dr. Bruce Campbell (Professor of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences, and Professor of Bioethics and Medical Humanities)
  • The Moving Pens is a wonderful outlet that helps me to keep writing in my life, amidst mounting clinical responsibilities. The group is a vibrant community of writers who work in healthcare. The workshop format offers all group members the opportunity to give and receive valuable, collegial feedback.” ~Dr. Brittany Bettendorf, MCW Rheumatology fellow
  • “I so appreciated the camaraderie that developed amongst the group of busy professionals trying to carve out time for writing. The insightful feedback from the other Moving Pens’ members gave me many new ideas not only for my current work, but for future projects.” ~Joanne Nelson, MFA Creative Nonfiction
