2020 Annual Meeting Storytelling Session
We have an exciting Storytelling Session planned this year in lieu of our regular research submissions. We will be collecting 5-minute personal stories on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion from NY-NJ MLA Chapter members only. Submit the draft of your story (600 words or less) by September 30 for consideration. A few stories (from 3-4 members) will be selected by our judges (Shannon Jones, Beverly Murphy, Brenda Linares, Jerry Perry, and Sarah Jewell) to be shared at our Annual Meeting (each member who is selected will receive a 60 minute online coaching session from storyteller and author Margot Leitman). One storytelling instruction session, free to NY-NJ MLA members, held on Tuesday, September 15, from 2:00pm – 3:00pm EST, will be offered by Margot Leitman (register for the storytelling instruction session here).
