“In My Time” – Memoir Writing Workshop – Every Monday at 2 pm

In your life you have…
seen unforgettable beauty,
witnessed historic changes,
experienced events that this
generation can only Google!
Now is the time to recall & record the…
for your family now & in the future,
your friends here & from times past,
but most of all write your memoir for yourself!
So you’re thinking great idea, but not for me—I can’t write.
Trust me, teaching College Writing for over 30 years, I’ve heard that line before—from HCC to NYU! And just as often I’ve seen beginners tap into their creativity, learn the basics of grammar & style and amaze themselves at how easily the words flow. Writing is a natural gift, and like any craft it can be mastered. Discover the writer within! And whether it’s a page, a chapter or your entire autobiography, I’ll help you compose, revise, edit, and if you choose even publish the story of your life!

Imagine 17 years of your life. Now imagine 17 years of your life floating away…

Join us for a dramatic reading of Donovan’s Charge, an account of how one New Yorker–city worker, life guard, counselor– fights off an attacker and administers CPR until the arrival of the police, only to find himself facing a murder charge.

Based on trial transcripts and witness accounts, Donovan’s Charge, celebrates innocence– both in court and in spirit, and how one man preserves his–with the spirit of the boy and his trusty toy steed, Donovan, until the day of their release.
