Bronx Memoir Project Workshop – “Subject Yourself”

February 16 @ 1:45 PM - 3:45 PM

Free

Memoir tends to be about the person writing, in some way, ourselves. And while this may seem obvious, it doesn’t always account for who we mean when discussing ourselves. Do we mean oneself as we exist here and now? How we remember ourselves ten years ago? Or maybe just as importantly, how we appear to other people? This introductory memoir workshop will talk about how to formulate yourself as a character, or rather, a subject in between how you exist today while writing, and how collective memory shapes a different you as a character.

About Joseph Earl Thomas, Instructor

Joseph Earl Thomas is a writer from Northeast Philly whose work has appeared or is forthcoming  in Apiary, Philadelphia Printworks, The Offing and The Kenyon Review. A memoirist and poet, he also wonders how things might have gone had he fallen in love with hominids first, and so writes speculative fiction too but only by the night. He is currently working on two book-length projects: Sink, a memoir about coming of age as an undereducated blerd in the city, and a fantasy novel, The Gift From Alondria.
