Micro Memoirs

March 28, 2021

Micro Memoir Workshop led by Elizabeth Klein to “get out your feelings, share your history and be heard!”


The workshop began with getting in touch with the process of writing, zoning in on a moment, recognizing our feelings. Micro Memoir is an elastic hybrid structure of writing in which the writer zones in one particular moment. The Micro allows for blurring of boundaries of traditional genres. While the integrity of truth-telling remains, the format can shift from creative non-fiction to poetic form or infusion of information to support the story, quotes or dialogue.

Materials for the workshop included pens, paper or a journal. We each brought a memory, past observation or image that we wanted to explore. The workshop consisted of warm up exercises, 15 minutes of writing time and then sharing of our experiences.

Elizabeth Klein is a Clinical Professor in the Special Education Behavior Disorders program at CUNY -Hunter College. Elizabeth coordinates the District 75 cohort of Teaching Fellows and teaches courses in reading and writing education, classroom management and behavior disorders.

Sock Puppet Burlesque

February 27, 2021

At the Sock Puppet Burlesque on 2/21/21 we made Sock Puppets and used them to make a group performance video. The puppets were quick simple ones, just adding eyes to socks, or more complicated ones with wigs, brains, and accessories. We each had one minute to animate our sock puppet with dialogue, songs, music, or sounds.

DADA “TZARA” Zine Workshop

October 13, 2020

10/18/20 Day de Dada 3rd Sundays- 4pm, Monthly Meetups, short sessions to play and see your Day de Dada friends.

Learn methods to create a simple zine out of one sheet of paper and work on it during our get together.We are suggesting creation of a Dada “TZARA**” zine, where you will fill your new blank zine layout with images and words you randomly pull from available magazines or other printed matter.

Maggie Buford* will show us 2 simple ways to make our zine and then we will have about 20 minutes to work on it. You will need magazines or something to pull images and words, scissors, glue, and 4 sheets of letter size paper (81/2” x 11”) Then we will have some time to share and chit chat.*Maggie Buford is a fiber artist and poet. She founded SIZL (a zine collective) that has received a DCA Art Fund Grant from Staten Island ArtsIn 1920,

**Tristan Tzara gave the following instruction on how To Make a Dadaist Poem: Take a newspaper. Take some scissors. Choose an article the length you want to make your poem. Cut out each of the words and put them all in a bag. Shake gently. Take out each cutting one after the other. Use in the order in which they left the bag. The poem will resemble you.

Part of the Day de Dada 3rd Sundays- 4pm, Monthly Meetups, short sessions to play and see your Day de Dada friends.
