Memoir Writing: Mining Your Memory, Engaging Your Imagination
How has my past influenced my choices today, including my decision to volunteer alongside like-minded peers for the good of our community? How are these new experiences changing me? In this memoir and creative writing workshop, participants will be guided to reflect upon their personal stories as well as on their perspectives and experiences as Engage volunteers through hands-on writing. Each of the four sessions will include a contemplative exercise to clear the mind, writing from suggested prompts, discussion and sharing. Prompts may include suggesting ideas, using a photo or other object to jog the memory, and/or questions that direct participants to write reflectively, retelling their Engage (and related) stories in meaningful ways. Rules of positive feedback and confidentiality will be upheld to assure an environment of trust. Participating in each of the four sessions will allow participants to progress at their own pace, while helping to build a community of Engage writers. Let’s face it; it can be more fun and productive to write in a group! Hand-out materials will be made available for those who need to miss a session. The instructor will offer written comments on work submitted or written in class. For more information, please contact Rabbi Brian Fink, Director of Engage, at 646.505.4408 or bfink@jccmanhattan.org. Engage Jewish Service Corps is generously supported by the UJA-Federation of New York. (more)REGISTER
