WORKSHOP – Life Writing and Memoir

Date: Wednesday 18th September 2019
Venue: Masonic Hall
Time: 9.30am -10.30am – Tips for getting started • £15
Time: 2pm – 5pm – More in-depth workshop (max 20) • £50

Whether you are writing about your own life or your family’s, or about someone from the past, you’ll need the tools to make your story accurate and compelling.

Choose between two sessions, depending where you are with your history, and Emma – a creative writing mentor and tutor, author of This is Not a Book About Charles Darwin, and curator of the hugely popular blog This Itch of Writing – will show you how to make your story come alive for the reader.

Morning: a short overview session with guidance to help you decide which route to take and some resources.

Afternoon: this session is for those who want to dig deeper. You’ll explore how to find the facts you need, and craft them into an engaging narrative, and you’ll leave with new ideas, resources and inspiration for your memoir or life writing.

Numbers strictly limited.
