NJCU Alumni Day/Homecoming (Edi Giunta) gave two Memoir workshops!

I went to NJCU Day yesterday September 24,2016 and I saw Edi.It was Homecoming for NJCU Alumni. One of the young women that came to the workshop taught by Edi Giunta said she remembered me from Memoirfest at Edi’s house back in December 2014, May 2015 or December 2015. She was Caucasian and very thin and she told us she taught 7th and 8th grade English. I told Edi I was a new Early Childhood Education major. She said oh nice! Edi encouraged me to use a free write I wrote during the workshop on 09/24/2016 about Mabel my great grandmother and she said the free writing I did about Mabel my great grandmother has potential to become a 10-15 page contained memoir piece. I am writing a book length memoir that will be 40,000 words by January 2017 if not by June 2017. The title of my memoir is Ayesha’s Story (The Schizophrenia Memoirs). The final draft will be 60,000-70,000 words Edi said for it to be a book length memoir.
