Memories are the footprints of our past and hold the answers to our present.

This workshop is an interactive and supportive space to explore the elements of memoir writing: how to turn memories into stories, finding your story’s shape, voice and purpose, and the elements of story that help bring your memoir to life.

This tour is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and presented in association with Blarney Books and Art.
