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.
