It's not unheard of medical writers who venture into fiction land, or physicians who become poets or novelists. In fact, there is a physician here on our campus who recently published a medical thriller, The Blood Notes of Peter Mallow.
What I hadn't heard of yet was that there are special seminars for MDs with literary inclinations. Well, it seems like SEAK has been doing such a thing for a decade. In 2009, they will hold the 10th Annual Fiction Writing for Physicians Conference, featuring two best-selling physician authors. Check their site here.
