"You must not tell anyone,’ my mother said, ‘what I am about to tell you.”  So begins The Woman Warrior, Maxine Hong Kingston’s dazzling memoir of growing up in a Chinese immigrant family in California.  Migration stories often involve keeping secrets, but these experiences cry out to be shared because of their significance.  If you have ever imagined telling the story of your migration (or your family’s), this workshop is for you.

Join a 10-week workshop to read and view various migration stories in poetry, non-fiction, fiction, and film. We will discuss these examples as we write our own short narratives. 

The workshops will be led by Arlene Keizer, the Chairperson of the Department of Humanities and Media Studies at Pratt Institute.

For more information and to register, please attend one of the info sessions:

January 25th, 10am - 12pm, Trustees Room (3rd floor)
