But though people&#39;s lives can differ greatly, human feelings&nbsp;and needs are universal. We&#39;ll explore ways to use emotion, our five senses, and&nbsp;creative insight to craft memoir pieces any reader can identify with. &nbsp; About the Instructor:&nbsp;Donna Minkowitz has taught memoir writing since 1998, at venues including the&nbsp;92nd St. Y, The Kitchen, and In Our Own Write. Her recent memoir Growing Up&nbsp;Golem: How I Survived My Mother, Brooklyn and Some Really Bad Dates was a&nbsp;finalist for both a Lambda Literary Award and for the Judy Grahn Nonfiction&nbsp;Award. She won a Lammy for her first memoir, Ferocious Romance. Minkowitz&nbsp;has also written for the New York Times Book Review, Salon, The Collagist, The&nbsp;Nation, and New York magazine. She is a member of New York Writers Workshop. &nbsp; <a href="http://newyorkwritersworkshop.com/" rel="nofollow">NEW YORK WRITERS WORKSHOP</a>&nbsp;is an alliance of experienced, professional writers of poetry, fiction, nonfiction, plays and screenplays who live and teach in New York City.

The story begins as globetrotting National Geographic photographer Robert Kincaid journeys to Madison County in 1965 to film its lovely covered bridges. Upon his arrival, he stops by an old farmhouse to ask directions. There he encounters housewife, Francesca Johnson, whose spouse and two children are out of town. Thus begins their four-day affair, a liaison that fundamentally changes them both. Later Francesca chronicles the affair in a diary which her flabbergasted grown children read; never would they have expected their mother to be capable of the passion she experienced with Kincaid.

When you tweet that you are looking for a job, then you can probably notify hundreds of job search helpers. People you follow on tweeter usually have a wide network of their own. Therefore, when you tweet, your message is communicated to your friend&rsquo;s friends on the follower list. This will help you provide a scope to find a job faster. Your potential employers can locate you through professional social networking sites like LinkedIn. These employers can review your activity on the sites and tell you where your interest lies.&nbsp;If the potential employers understand your knowledge and passion in the field, then they can take the interview process to the next step.&nbsp;Make sure while providing information on your profile try to specify the type of job you are looking for in your chosen field. You can easily contact with different people and start communicating with them. You can inform the job search helpers for the type of job you are looking for. Through proper communication you can get information on interviewing, resumes or cover letters. These job search helpers can give you advice on different process for finding a job. POSSIBLE DISADVANTAGES: When you use your social networking sites to look for a job, then ensure that your profile provides a proper image to the viewers. Try to untag or remove embarrassing photos from your profile. Make sure that you remove controversial comments from your status updates. Try to provide professional impression to the viewers.&nbsp; If you are currently employed, then using social networking tools while looking for a new job can complicate your situation. Therefore, you are required to be careful while searching for jobs on these sites when you are working. If your current employers find that you are looking for a job, then you might lose your current job.
