Talk Online | Memoir: Getting Started

Online | Memoir: Getting Started

Synopsis

Everyone has a memoir in them and in most cases, this is where it stays. This online short course is for people who have a true story to tell and a hundred excuses for not telling it: maybe you’ve never written anything before, you have a foggy memory, or – most often – you don’t want to anger or upset your family. What are the ethics of owning your story and laying the past to rest? Biographer and critic Frances Wilson will discuss how to start writing your memoir and how to do so sensitively.
 
This is one of three memoir writing courses. Book for one or as many as you like:
 
Thursday 29 July - Getting Started
Thursday 5 August – Shaping Your Story
Thursday 12 August - The Art of Remembering
 

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
