Event Description

‘You must write a memoir as if you’re writing a novel, you have to give it a shape.’ Blake Morrison.

Tuesday mornings, 10.30am to 1pm September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 13, 20. £125.

Over 6 weeks, we will explore how to shape and structure our writing in a compelling and novelistic way. We will learn ways to hook our readers into our story, keep them turning the pages, charm and alarm them with our characters and reveal fascinating, relatable truths about our lives. We will investigate what is meant by a strong voice in memoir and understand how stylistic devices like dialogue, scene building, setting description, and suspense creates a vivid world the reader can disappear inside. As well as reading extracts from published memoirists, nominated students will have the chance to workshop extracts of their writing each week. All levels welcome.

You can progress to Life Writing & Memoir Part 2 in the second part of the Autumn term. Part 2 is for people who have done a previous course at Collage Writing Room with Giovanna, or who are some way into a life writing project. You can do either Part 1 or Part 2 as a stand-alone course - or you can do both.

Part 2) Tuesday mornings, 10.30am to 1pm; November 3, 10, 17, 24, December 1, 8. £125
