  • Voices: Oral History Workshop | Day 2

    February 3, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
    Writers Room Studio, 3250 Chestnut Street, MacAlister Hall (First floor)

    Voices of our Pasts, Presents, and Futures | A 2-Day Workshop

    DAY 2: SATURDAY, FEB. 3
    Editing / Refining our Oral Histories / Creative Writing

    On these two days, you will get the chance to tell your own story and help another person tell theirs in the form of an oral history. You will learn about collecting oral histories from Kelly McQuain and Robert Watts. You will then interview one or more participants—about their dreams, motivations, families, friends, where they are now, and where they are going in the future. This is a chance for you to tell your story, but also to remember and keep alive stories of others that are important to you.

    We will publish a chapbook in spring 2018 that will feature your work. This workshop is free and open to all, but space is limited. Contact Valerie Fox (vf25@drexel.edu) or stop by the Writers Room campus space to register.

    Come at 10:00 AM for refreshments before the workshop begins at 10:30 AM!

    -----

    SUGGESTED PREPARATION:

    - Bring along a photograph, image, letter, etc. that may be useful in telling your story.
    - Think about an important story from your childhood that you like to tell.
    - Consider what words best describe you, and what words others might use to describe you.
    - What are your thoughts on changes happening in the University City area, Mantua, Powelton Village, and beyond?
