Sharing my personal stories in Memoir Workshop classes and at Memoirfest

I shared my personal narrative my last two semesters at NJCU. I shared in class in both Memoir classes.  I shared from the two memoirs I wrote in Edi Giunta’s classes at Memoirfest in December 2014 and May 2015. I had never shared outside of a safe space like NAMI Mercer NJ or AAMH partial care program or in a therapy session. I took a risk being that vulnerable but I am so glad I took that risk. Everyone responded positively at Memoirfest!
