This workshop is for anyone interested in writing a memoir or may already be working on one. It offers opportunities, in a safe, relaxed space, to explore ideas for gathering and structuring memoir material.
You will also explore the audience for your memoir and use images, poems and other prompts for writing memoir.
By the end of the workshop, you will have read extracts from different types of memoirs, created some memoir pieces and produced a plan for developing your memoir. You will also have identified strategies for addressing issues which might arise in writing your memoir.
