Creative Writing Workshop: Writing Childhood Memories

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." – Maya Angelou

Do you have the urge to write about your childhood (or the childhood of someone else) in a sophisticated and moving manner? Do you wish to gain more confidence in your writing and develop greater self-awareness as a writer?

In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of memoir writing (with a focus on childhood). We’ll delve into short stories and poems on the theme of childhood and perform a textual analysis of these works in order to better understand the elements of good writing. Then, we’ll have a chance to jolt our minds using a range of writing prompts which are easy to replicate at home.

This workshop is also a great opportunity to meet like-minded writers and potentially form small writing support groups. Whether you’re a beginner short story writer, a poet or novelist, this workshop will give you the necessary tools and inspiration to take your writing to new heights.
