The Bronx Memoir Project (BMP) workshop series is targeted to aspiring professionals and avocational writers of all ages. These free professionally-led workshops build on the Bronx Council on the Arts’ success in developing first-person narratives and bringing personal stories to the fore. The goal of the program is to ensure that local voices do not go unheard and that local writers receive the professional development they need to continue publishing on their own.
The success of these memoir-writing workshops will culminate in a book release event for an anthology comprised of exclusively selected original memoir works produced during the workshop series. Noted writer and educator Crystal Valentine will coordinate the BMP workshop series.
