“Writing the Italian in Your Memories”: Fall Edition

Laboratorio di Scrittura, Writing Workshop
Saturdays, October 2, 16 and 30, 2021: 10:00-11:45am

The workshop will take place in the cottage on the left side of the mansion, which can be reached by following the paved sidewalk and stairs.

All On-site at Casa Belvedere with Zoom option. If you are interested in participating via Zoom, email beatrice@casa-belvedere.org
No experience necessary, just a notebook and pen!

When we look back on our past, whether a year or decades ago, our stories are often intertwined with our culture—its richness, expectations, challenges and humor. During each workshop, led by author Maria Giura, we’ll focus on how one aspect of Italian American (IA) life—identity, travel, holidays—forms the background or foreground of our memories.

We’ll read and discuss short, vibrant excerpts written by IA authors. Participants will then be given prompts to generate their own writing and, by the end of each workshop, will have produced an original piece of writing. In-person enrollment limited to 10 participants. P.S. You don’t have to be Italian to write about how Italy may be part of your memories!

Register for one, two, or all three workshops.
Part 1: Sat., Oct. 2
Part 2: Sat. Oct. 16
Part 3: Sat. Oct. 30
