The Story of Your Life: Making Magic Through Memoir

Real life rarely happens in neat linear ways. Writing it down can be harder than it seems. This course will help you find the story thread and turn it into a compelling, beautiful narrative. You’ll learn about memoir and essay structures, shapes and rhythms, how to blend experience and research, and how to take your work to market. Through discussion and workshopping, you will interrogate the art of narrative non-fiction and learn how to invigorate your own writing. 


  • When: Sunday 20 October, 10am–4pm
