Memoir Writing Course – 2 Day Course
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you. Maya Angelou
This class will give you the knowledge and confidence to bring your untold stories to life!
Over the course of two days, we will explore aspects of memoir writing, such as how to mine your personal histories, and organising and structuring your stories. As well as group and pair work, and informal discussions, you’ll also learn creative techniques to bring your stories to life.

Through a mixture of theory and practical assignments, the course will cover:
- Exploring memoir writing as a genre
