Tell Your Story

If you work or go to school at CUNY and are a family or paid caregiver for the elderly, ill, or disabled who would like to share your caregiving story on the Labor of Care Archive, enter your information below to participate in any of the following opportunities.  Also check the “Events” page regularly for announcements of upcoming workshops and performances.

Caregiving at CUNY oral history project: You would be paired with a CUNY student or faculty member to participate in an oral history interview about your caregiving experiences.  Interviews would be 30-60 minutes and you would have the opportunity to review the interview transcript once it is transcribed.

Writing mentor: Archive founder Kathy McDonald can provide online writing guidance to help you craft your caregiving story.

Caregiving at CUNY virtual writing groups: These 6-week writing groups will be run online on an occasional basis, based on interest and facilitator availability.
