Memoir Writing with Edvige Giunta
Write Your Memoir Five Minutes at a Time
Edvige Giunta guides writers through the challenging but astoundingly rewarding memoir journey. Using her accessible and proven hands-on approach, Edvige uses a series of writing prompts that will bring out stories you didn’t even know you carried inside yourself. You will learn how to develop and sustain the kind of writing practice that is necessary to plan, write, and complete a memoir. Guided meditations will sustain the writing experience. By the end of the workshop, you will have a toolbox of strategies to work on your memoir independently.
Fiction with Jonathan Levi
We love stories, whether they come from the imagination, the world around us, or the world within. Applicants to the Stories workshop should bring stories-in-progress—anything from ideas to drafts of short fiction. The week will focus on the tools of language and structure, with the aim of strengthening the writer’s voice, training it not only for the privacy of the shower but for the public stage of La Scala.
