Donna Minkowitz Writing Workshops

Donna Minkowitz Writing Workshops
Organization Name: Donna Minkowitz Writing Workshops

Donna Minkowitz has taught memoir writing workshops for 20 years, at the 92nd Street Y, the New York Writers Workshop, the Mt. Chocorua Writing Workshop, and The Kitchen. She is the author of two award-winning memoirs, Growing Up Golem and Ferocious Romance, and has written for the New York Times Book Review, The Nation, and elsewhere.

Long Description:

Her workshops focus on craft – particularly on using emotion, our five senses, and storytelling to construct profound and relatable works of personal writing. Students will get frequent feedback in a supportive atmosphere. You may either use weekly class assignments to spark your writing, or, if you prefer, continue working on a memoir that you already have in mind. Writers at all levels are welcome. Classes start on Wednesday evenings – contact Donna for location.
