FREE Writing Workshops: Bronx Memoir Project Workshop

Bronx Memoir Project: (tell a friend!)

Greetings from the Bronx Writers Center!

The Bronx Memoir Project seeks to collect stories written by Bronx residents, about themselves and by themselves, for an anthology to be published this summer. Open to all current Bronx residents.

Stories should be between 500 and 1,000 words in length and can be emailed to (on or before June 5, 2014).

Below is a list of the remaining workshops. Those for women and teens are strictly for those groups, but the rest are open to anyone. You can direct any questions about this to me if necessary. I’m in the office Monday-Thursday.

Also, Orlando Ferrand will be conducting a workshop en español on May 31, if you would like to tell someone about that.

We want to hear your story, Bronxites!
