Episode 68: Illness as Muse: Ten Years of the Bellevue Literary Review
The Bellevue Literary Review is the first literary journal to be published from a medical center. Based in the oldest public hospital in the country, and perhaps the most legendary, the BLR has ushered in an entire field of literary medical writing. Now at the ten-year mark, the BLR illuminates the human condition through the prism of health and healing, illness and disease, and relationships to the body and mind. BLR writers Rafael Campo, Hal Sirowitz, David Oshinsky, Jacob Freedman, and Amanda Auchter explore these themes via fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
