Objectives of the study were to increase the knowledge about women who in their middle age have lost their mothers and to investigate the therapeutic value of expressive writing in the grief process according to the women. Methöd: An interview was carried out with 18 professional female authors about their writings abouth death of a close relative, their mothers. They were asked to tell about the grief and what yhe writing meant to them. Results: All authors described in narratives. Some results were evident such as; feeling of relief by writing and their reflections and memories became clear. As authors of imaginative litterature they were use to the process of writing. Conclussions: The evidence from this study offers useful information to plan and design programmes based on narratives structures in nursing medical care.
