TMI Project is a nonprofit organization that offers memoir writing workshops that culminate in staged true storytelling performances - sort of like The Moth meets The Vagina Monologues. Their slogan is "Changing the world, one story at a time."
This past year, after receiving a grant, they launched the TMI Project Community Outreach Initiative, which brings the TMI workshop to under-served populations.
While doing that, they have also continued regular workshops and shows. On March 11th they begin their first "for the page" 9-week workshop. It's an essay writing class, and will culminate in a small collection of essays that will be for sale, and a reading at a book store.
They’ll have their third women's retreat workshop at LifeBridge Sanctuary in Rosendale March 15th - 17th.
There’s a LOT going on and Eva Tenuto, Executive Director of TMI Project, and Sari Botton, Editorial Director join us to tell us more.
Today, in the midst of the debate surrounding the front page publication of a photo of a New York City man who was shoved in front of a subway car this week, we want to hear your harrowing tales of heroism, or lack thereof.
Was there a time in your life when you could have acted but did not, or maybe you rose to the challenged and saved a life, or two? Time to tell your incredible story! WAMC’s Alan Chartock hosts.
