Matthew Dempsey, Assistant Director of Admission at Fairfield University, will share a first-hand account of the role of the admission counselor, read examples of essays that have and haven't worked, and talk about how essays are viewed in the context of the entire application.

Introduction to Memoir: Telling Your Life Stories

Join us as we discuss the best ways to begin writing your memoir, either as a full-length book or as individual essays. We'll learn how to focus on our life experiences, write a descriptive summary with plot points, and use the techniques of fiction -- setting, character, dialogue -- to enrich the storytelling process so readers will want to read your book.

Her award-winning essays have been published in numerous publications and radio programs including The New York Times, Salon.com, Eating Well, New York Metro, Babble.com, Literary Mama, Upper East Side, Wilton, StepMom, Anderbo, Tiny Lights: A Journal of Narrative Nonfiction, and featured on The Story on National Public Radio.
