"When you are writing a memoir, don't feel you have to tell the reader everything", says Lorna Hendry. "Allow them to make links, draw their own conclusions and interpret events in a way that is meaningful to them."

Lorna’s travel memoir, ‘Wrong Way Round’, is the story of her three-year camping trip around Australia with her family. She is the author and designer of many non-fiction children’s picture books on topics as varied as penguins, the five senses and life on the equator.

Lorna will be running a half-day workshop on Research and Interviews as part of our Memoir in a Year series.'
