I’m running a Life writing/memoir course
on Thurs eve February 11th
There’ll be 7 one hour sessions, the cost for the entire course will be £70 (£58 conc.)
Each week I’ll cover a different aspect of memoir writing – topics will be:
What’s your story about? How to plan it. We’ll create a framework in a little more depth.
Week Two - you’ll bring your plot framework who are the main characters, what's the theme?
Let’s look at genre this week? Is it a tear jerker, an adventure or a comedy? Is memoir writing therapy let’s deconstruct that old chestnut.
Character and description Describe your main characters. We’ll do some exercises and get feedback.
Timeline. Where is your story placed in time? eg. who was prime minister? Is it set in the past? The distant past? The present?
It’s not just libel. If there are living characters in your story, what will they think? How will you deal with these challenges … and then there’s copyright.
Getting published. Publishing options. Becoming an Indie(self-published author). How to edit etc.
Do you really want to face the challenges of writing a memoir? Seriously? You’ll find out by the end of this course, you really will.
I’m a poet(prize-winning) and an author – I have 3 books for sale – one is a memoir, which took me 5-10 years to write. I learnt a lot.
I used to teach undergraduates at London Metropolitan University and at Birkbeck University of London. I have an MA in Professional Writing.
