Memoir is the ideal genre for people young and old, to discover their writing voice because this is your story, you know it best. You have the skills to express your experience in your own words.
On this workshop with experienced teacher Deborah Shepard, you will be introduced to techniques that will assist you to unlock your creative voice in a safe and friendly environment. The session will also include a talk on the joy of writing memoir, a definition of memoir and an introduction to a reading list including excerpts from some of the great autobiographies and memoirs. There will also be a writing exercise: 'A defining childhood memory'.
