‘Micro-Memoir’ Returns To Athenaeum

micro memoir (2.21) Co-presented by Not About the Buildings and the Providence Athenaeum, this unique workshop is free and open to the public.

Join us to write and read aloud extremely short (200-word) personal memoirs based on an object/muse to be presented by our workshop facilitator, the noted short-short prose pioneer Karen Donovan, as the session begins. Participants will experience both the rigors and elation of writing short-short prose, and the reading aloud segment will be buoyed by the energy of surprise and speed. The more diverse the writing is, the more exciting the readings will be, so bring your parents, your children, and your friends, old and young.

Refreshments from 5pm to 5:30pm. David Scharfenberg reported on last year’s event for the Providence Phoenix.

Free, 5pm to 8pm, Tuesday, February 21, Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street
