Here's a great offering by one of our local RI non-profits. I plan on attending, as do several teachers I know. Come out on the 21st and join us for micro-memoir fun!
February 21, 2012 – Micro-Memoir
Co-Presented with Not About The Buildings
Join us to write and read aloud extremely short (200-word) personal memoirs based on an object/muse to be presented by our workshop facilitator, the noted short-short prose pioneer Karen Donovan, as the session begins. Participants will experience both the rigors and elation of writing short-short prose, and the reading aloud segment will be buoyed by the energy of surprise and speed. The more diverse the writing is, the more exciting the readings will be, so bring your parents, your children, and your friends, old and young. The intergenerational diversity and interaction will give participants new perspectives on the different way humans view the world around them at different points in their lives.
Workshop made possible in part by a grant from the RI State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the RI General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Our generous sponsor is Yankee Travel.
Location: 251 Benefit Street, Providence, RI
Time: 5:00 – 8:00pm (5 to 5:30 for refreshments, activities begin at 5:30)
