UMPI students collaborate with TAMC on writing project

Students at the University of Maine at Presque Isle collaborated with TAMC’s Aroostook Health Center in Mars Hill on a unique writing project that took them out of the classroom. Three students from Dr. Deborah Hodgkins’ Creative Nonfiction Workshop course—Virginia White, Megan King, and Melissa Lizotte—travelled to TAMC’s long-term care facility to interview patients about their life experiences so they could write biographical profile stories based on the interviews. The students then returned to Mars Hill to present their finished profiles to the patients they interviewed. The patients expressed gratitude for the hard work that the students put into their biographical profiles. TAMC officials also appreciated the time and effort that went into this project.
