Making Clinical Sense team involved in new series on craft of writing

Writing Life is a new series in Somatosphere that focuses on the craft of writing in the social studies of medicine. Many of the Making Clinical Sense team have been involved, from interviewing (Andrea Wojcik, Carla Greubel), being interviewed (Sally Wyatt) to editing the series (Anna Harris).

Read these fascinating conversations, crafted between writers, for stories of often unspoken aspects of writing books, articles, tweets and other genres.

Writing Life focuses on the craft of writing in the social studies of medicine. Amidst the current challenges to making texts, this series invites scholars in our field to take time to reflect, in conversation with each other, on how to navigate and nurture their craft.

Each post in Writing Life delves into the black boxes of writing life, exploring the specificities of producing texts about the lives of those entangled in illness, care, pain, diagnosis, experiment, research, suffering, and recovery. The spirit of the contributions is collaborative β€” an exploration through dialogue. In crafting the posts, authors also explore a research practice central to our fields – interviewing – and the work and art of transcribing and editing other people’s words.

The first installment of this series is composed of 8 interviews, published weekly. We openly invite further contributions to the series to appear in 2021. Please contact series editors Anna Harris ( or Denielle Elliott ( to express interest. You may already have someone in mind to interview or be interviewed by, but we can also make recommendations.
