"Writing can be a lonely practice," says WV tutor Rebecca Starford, "which is why it is so important to reach out and form networks."

Rebecca is the author of Bad Behaviour, a memoir recounting her experiences at a remote outdoor-education boarding school. She is the co-founder and publishing director of Kill Your Darlings, and an editor at Text Publishing.

Rebecca will be running a half-day Legal Issues & Ethics workshop at Writers Victoria as part of our Memoir in a Year series in October 2015.

On this website, you'll also find Rebecca's writing workout on the ethics of memoir.
