Stories from the day hospice


Throughout the summer of 2012, Wellcome Trust Senior Editor Chrissie Giles spent time at the day hospice at Princess Alice Hospice, Esher, running a creative writing group. In a series of posts for the Wellcome Collection blog accompanying Death: A self-portrait, she reflected on her experiences there and showcased some of the writing produced by group members. These stories have now been gathered together as a single publication.

Read the individual stories on the Wellcome Collection blog.
