    Ever wanted to write a memoir but have no idea how to start? 

    Was doing more writing one of your New Year’s resolutions?

    This five week course is for you.  You’ll get an introduction to the what, why and how  of memoir writing, and over the five weeks, you’ll get a structure to keep following after the course ends.  With an emphasis on in class writing, you will develop a good body of material and the confidence to keep on going.  Beginner writers are warmly welcomed, and if you’re afraid that you’re not a good writer, rest assured that no one is compelled to read aloud their writing in class, unless they want to.  We do however chat about the subjects we explore each week.  

    Dr Kylie Carman-Brown is a published historian and writer.  She is the author of Following the water: Environmental history and hydrology in the Gippsland Lakes catchment, 1838-1900, recently published by ANU Press.  She has been a curator at the National Museum of Australia and a research editor at the Australian Dictionary of Biography.  She is currently working on a second book of environmental history, as well as fiction projects.  She is also a volunteer coordinator for Nanowrimo.
