UMD Alum Publishes Poetry and Teaches Writing in the Medical Humanities in the Big Apple

Julia Brown
March 12, 2019

Julia Brown (MA, English, Emphasis in Writing Studies), has flourished in writing and the medical humanities since graduating from UMD.

As a creative writer, Julia has published two poems recently. In The Furious Gazelle, she published "The Falcon Cannot Hear the Falconer, but I Can Hear the Falcon (I Think)." This poem reflects the struggles of writer's block and life in New York City. Additionally, she has published "Escaping Updike and Other Men who Exhaust Me" in Literature Today (Volume 7)

Her passion for the place of literature in the human heart carries into her passion for the medical humanities. At City College of New York, she teaches a Freshman Inquiry Writing Seminar to pre-med students on writing about narrative medicine and works toward refining their medical humanities writing curriculum. (Julia has long worked at the intersection of writing and medicine, including freelance writing for St. Luke's as part of her MA degree at UMD.)
