Writing Your Own Memoir

How to start writing your life story

From Saturday Mar 10, 2018 to Saturday Mar 17, 2018
Cost: £710.00
Availability: Full


Writing your memoir can be a wonderfully fulfilling and healing process. Whether it is for yourself, your children, or grandchildren, for publication or self-publishing, a memoir helps make sense of things and offers an opportunity to reflect on the deeper meaning of your life.

In a safe, supportive, confidential space, you will explore your life in writing; find a voice, purpose, confidence and inspiration; tackle shape, structure and story-telling; practise dialogue (and humour!); consider spiritual and ethical issues; review your experiences in a new and uplifting way.

People Say…

"The course was expertly designed to take us through a journey into the depths mid/week and then to rise to a lighter place by Friday. Course very carefully thought out and clearly delivered, with appropriate handouts and supplementary information. Loved the mix of poetry and prose, and the sharing of pieces within the group so that we bonded very deeply as a whole. "
