We each of us have a fascinating story to tell. Learn how to identify what your story is, how you can get it down and how to craft it so that it sparkles.

Whether you want to create a life blog, a personal essay or a full-blown memoir, the workshop provides a supportive space and the tools for you to start (or continue) your memoir-writing journey.

This workshop is presented in collaboration with the Woodend Winter Arts Festival. Venue details at Woodend will be announced closer to the event date.

You will learn

  • how to discover what’s so interesting about your life through exercises for exploring life themes
  • getting your life story down
  • strategies for silencing your internal critic and discovering the emotional truth of your story
  • techniques for moving beyond the first draft
  • telling the world – opportunities to share your life story
