Have you ever wanted to transform your experiences into stories? Join us for a six-week course during which we’ll consider truth, memory and storytelling techniques as we write about aspects of our own lives.


Writing memoir empowers us to convert our own unique experiences to the page.  During the sessions, we will consider various aspects of memoir writing, including voices, truth versus memory, and chronological and non-chronological storytelling and take part in weekly writing exercises.  By the end of this course, you will have begun to develop your own portfolio of memoir writing.


    Participants will develop confidence in writing skills in a range of style and formats as they learn about voice, selection of themes and storytelling techniques.  They will also have access to weekly feedback from the course tutor. :
