I am taking an Advanced Memoir workshop class in this, my last semester of college. I am reading four books that my teacher Edi Giunta is using to teach us how to write time in memoir and how to write scenes and about place and how to write characters and even dialogue. I am looking forward to writing my memoir proposal in the next three weeks and then I have to write a 2,000 word draft the following week. My memoir is going to be about my relationship with my mother and how it’s changed since my childhood or adolescence.
I am a Black Guyanese woman in my 30s. I went back to college to take Early Childhood Education classes. I want to get a second 36-credit Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education by 2021. I go to NJCU. I have a BA in Creative Writing from NJCU. I graduated from NJCU in August 2015. I transferred to NJCU from Mercer. I have my AA degree from Mercer in Humanities and Social Sciences since May 2007. I write poems, I write memoirs, I'm a blogger and I am taking a children's writer course. I love reading memoirs and I do book reviews from time to time. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson. I grew up in Ewing, New Jersey. I live in Princeton Junction with my parents!
