“Writing Mom as a Character”
Moms, grandmothers, aunts, and caregivers really deserve our thanks and love on Mother’s Day. Through reading and writing exercises, we will create characters based on the moms we know. We will build a storyline and each develop a short story for our special mom. The final product will help make the #BestMothersDayEver!
Jackie de Dios is an emerging Filipino American writer born and raised in Queens. Her work focuses on the Filipino American and the Queens experience.
This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
