Hello, my name is A.R.Salandy and if you’re reading this then you’re interested in our Thyroid Poetry Cafes. During our inaugural café we had the pleasure of discussing our Thyroid illnesses and their impact on our daily lives and social interactions that spawn poetry and other creative endeavours.
During our sessions we have heard from two intimate groups of individuals with a variety of thyroid illnesses including; Hashimoto’s, Hypothyroidism and Graves Disease. We also heard about the creative process that has facilitated the attendees writing journeys. Through our struggles as a group, we were able to not only break ground with our writing but also expand on our creativity through developing our experiences, sentiments and reflections on living, learning and creating with a Thyroid Illness.
