Event description

Description

A course on Friday afternoons designed to help you discover powerful ways to write about your life experience and memories.

Tutor: Margaret Johnson

So many of us are bursting with memories and experiences that would bring a novel to life, or which would make a great memoir or autobiography.

Everyone has a story to tell, and in recent years there has been a great rise in the popularity of life writing. There are so many excellent reasons to write using your life experience.

  • Perhaps you want to share something of yourself with your family, or to relive a happy or exciting time of your life.

  • Or, alternatively, you might like the writing to be therapeutic, to help you to deal with past issues.

  • You may want others to benefit from your experience.

  • Or you may feel your memories or life experience are just be too good to waste, and you want to use them to bring fictional characters to life.

Writing From Your Life Experience will help you to decide both what you want to write about, and how you want to write it - as a novel, memoir or autobiography. The course will include focussing your writing,using story-telling techniques and descriptive writing to bring writing to life. You will take part in writing exercises and journaling to get your memories and creative juices flowing and to develop your writing voice, and we will also look at novels, memoirs and autobiographies to help you to develop your writing skills and to find the best way for you to make use of your own life experiences in your writing.
