Have you been thinking about writing your own memoir but don’t know how to get started? Or, you feel there’s a gap between what you want to say and the words you put down on paper?
This workshop will help you begin—or expand—your memoir journey. You will learn how to tap into your memory and create and piece together moments of your life literally “five minutes at a time.” From writing prompts that will bring out stories you didn’t even know you carried inside you to lessons in the craft of memoir to suggestions on how to develop and sustain a writing practice, Edvige Giunta’s workshop is packed with useful and inspiring activities that will help the memoirist in you blossom. Edvige Giunta is a Professor of English @ New Jersey City University.
This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
