Ronna Bloom is currently the Poet in Residence at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, where she offers health care professionals, patients, and visitors opportunities to articulate their experiences through reflective writing and poetry. She developed Rx for Poetry, in which she prescribes poems on the spot, and takes them to hospital waiting rooms, conferences, and independent bookstores.  Bloom’s most recent book, Cloudy With A Fire in the Basement, was shortlisted for The Relit Award. Her sixth collection, Salve, will be published by Pedlar Press this fall.
