Redefining Memory - NYCWP Writers Residency

Redefining Memory

Writers are often told, “write what you know,” but that doesn’t mean memoir is not a deeply imaginative process. In this reading and discussion group, we will examine one text per month and discuss the ways in which experimental writers are bending the boundaries of memory and redefining what “autobiography” constitutes. We will experiment with different forms, modalities and narrative structures as participants repackage their own experiences into unique ways of telling their story. A second semester of this workshop will be offered in the spring with a different book list.

Participants must access their own copies of the following texts:

October 16: In the Dream House, Carmen Maria Machado
November 13: Dictee, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha
December 11: Jane: A Murder, Maggie Nelson
January 15: The Yellow House, Sarah M. Broom  

When: On Zoom, Saturdays, 10am-12pm 10/16, 11/13, 12/11, 1/15
Cost: $125
