I really will be remembered as a woman who wrote a lot about her life and her lived experiences with mental illness.

When I was 33 3/4 years old starting in September 2014 I took Memoir workshop with Edi Giunta and my entire life changed. Somehow someone that knew I got such a beautiful surprise in my 30s tried to sabotage me and my goal of writing a memoir under the guidance and support or coaching of memoir professor Edi Giunta. Edi encouraged me that I could write memoir and that I was a writer and a poet but my memoir was prose. I am meeting Edi and the members of the NJCU Writers Workshop on September 12, 2017 from 7pm to 9pm.
