Bronx Memoir Project – Narrative Non-Fiction

February 27 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:00 PM on Thursday, repeating until 03/05/2020

In the world of people, celebration is often laced with melancholy, joy is a border that surrounds sorrow, and fear is usually one doorbell away from bravery. So, how the fork can we construct narratives that acknowledge a complicated and dynamic world? How do we avoid writing that transforms us into caricatures? How do we convey what it feels like to be us, alive in 2019? If the job of an artist is that of an emotional historian, then we must create personal essays that are as multi-dimensional and layered as the people who write them. In this generative workshop, we’ll explore and produce essays that strike many notes at once. Bring a notebook, pen, and a sense of adventure, as we take our writing to the edge of the world and bring back proof that we’ve been there.

Please note that you need to attend at least 3 out of 4 workshops to be considered for the publication at the end of the Bronx Memoir Project workshop series.
