Deepening the Emotional Truth of Your Memoir

This class is suitable for writers who are working on or have a draft of a memoir and are seeking to lift their work to the next level. You will focus on the art of revision, helping you get closer to the truth of your work. You’ll also pay attention to the craft – the gradual rendering of this truth palpable on the page, clear and vivid to your readers. You’ll do this through a mix of teaching techniques – theory, discussions, exercises and brainstorming of the unique problems you are tackling in your manuscript.


  • When: Saturday 27 April, 10am-4pm
  • Where: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne
