For over 20 years the Tennessee Chapter of ACP has sponsored
annual literature and medicine reading retreats. The concept has
remained the same over the years. Fiction, drama, poetry, with
occasional critical writing and artwork, are selected well in

commentaries, and share passages from other literary works that
caught our fancy. We also anticipated that such a journal could
alert us to appealing literary conferences in other parts of the
