Micro-Memoir Writing At Athenaeum


(5.9) Join ‘Not About The Buildings’ Thursday for micro-memoir!, an evening of self-discovery and sharing that is a lot more fun than the words “an evening of self-discovery and sharing” might have you believe. Now in its fourth year, micro-memoir! is hosted by the Providence Athenaeum and facilitated by very short story writer (and publisher) Karen Donovan, who co-founded Paragraph magazine over a quarter of a century ago. For twenty-five years Paragraph published work that was, as you might have guessed from the title, one paragraph long. So who better to walk us through our micro-memoir!s?

In two hours you will have a 200-word memoir written, edited, and shared with an appreciative and not overly critical audience. This really is probably the most fun event that Not About The Buildings does, and it works with all age levels, so bring your teenaged friends and your elderly loved ones, not to mention anyone else whose life you might like to know just a little more about.

5pm refreshments, 5:30pm event begins, Thursday, May 9, Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street
