Autobiography Writing Workshops

ant pushing droplet of waterIn the Life Writing and Memoir sessions in the program we help you work through your own process of finding and moulding your style and tone without compromising your right to tell your story.

As Anne Lamott says: ‘You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.’

You’ll learn:

  • ways to think about, unlock and translate private life stories and turn them into compelling reads
  • how to write with confidence and authenticity about all the people in your life
  •  the ethics in writing honestly about family without tossing a grenade into the real life relationships
  • how to get details ‘just right’ (the Goldilocks effect)
  • about making poetry out of ‘the ordinary’.
