Event description
Join us for the next BMP workshop series online, Writing Beyond Recollection: Craft Techniques to Mine Deeper Truths in Your Memoir.

About this event

When writing a memoir, many writers tend to rely exclusively on personal recollection. Yet techniques employed by fiction writers and poets can deepen our imaginative facilities, open up new pathways of memory, and make words come alive on the page. In this four-week series with Amy Gottlieb, participants will examine several craft techniques, generate new work from prompts, and find support and fresh inspiration for their project.

This generative workshop is geared for writers of all levels.

Workshop Schedule:

Tuesday, October 19th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Tuesday, October 26th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Tuesday, November 2nd from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Tuesday, November 9th from 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Organizer Bronx Council on the Arts

Organizer of BMP | Writing Beyond Recollection

Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is a pioneer in advancing cultural equity in The Bronx. From our early beginnings as a presenter of affordable arts programming in select Bronx neighborhoods, we have grown into a cultural hub that serves the entire creative ecosystem of the borough.  Our programs serve artists, the public, and the field at large by building connections, providing resources, and advocating for equitable practices. Then as now, we focus on supporting the work of underrepresented groups – especially artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Through this lens we offer affordable programs for seniors and youth, and provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community-based arts groups each year.
