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…

"Rosie was very committed to bringing out the best in everyone equally and was very kind and compassionate in her feedback which encouraged us all to keep writing. Any criticism of the actual writing was entirely constructive and clear and I felt in very safe hands. It was obvious from the start that Rosie has oodles of experience at holding a group process and with her own memoir also published and available for us to read if we wished, she was willing to share her own vulnerability openly, which I think helped me to open up quickly within the group. Would definitely work with her again. "
