“Witness to History” Writing Workshop

Saturday, March 9
1:00 – 3:00 pm in the Activity Room
The Library will host a workshop titled Witness to History © copyright by Carol Bergman 2019, facilitated by Carol Bergman, published author and Adjunct Associate Professor of Writing at NYU

Registration is available on a first come, first-served basis, and is available beginning February 9, on the  library’s calendar, or by calling the Program Office at 845 687-7023.

In this interactive workshop, students will choose a reported event they have witnessed either first-hand or through the media. We will begin with oral story-telling of personal recollections and then do research at the library, before drafting a personal essay. The only required tools are memory, your laptop, if you have one, a notebook and a free flowing pen. Beginners and seasoned writers are welcome.

Carol has a BA from the University of California at Berkeley and an MA in Media Studies from The New School. She is one of the founding faculty of Gotham Writers’ Workshop and has been teaching in the NYU writing program since 1997. Go to carolbergman.net for testimonials, samples of her writing, and a blog about writing and the writing life. Follow her on FB as Carol Bergman: Writer or on Twitter: bergman_carol. In the event of snow, the program will take place on Saturday, March 23.
