Writing your own story is a wonderfully healing and fulfilling process. Whether it’s for your family, publication, or just for yourself, a memoir can help make sense of your experience, and provide an opportunity to reflect on the deeper meaning of your life.

In this safe, supportive workshop, you will learn ways to make your memoir the best it can be, reflecting on audience, purpose and inspiration; issues of structure, voice, tense, narrative, practice dialogue (and humour!); consider spiritual and ethical issues; and look at some contemporary memoirs.

Residential Fees From: £376.   Non Residential: £252

Course runs from Dinner on Friday to Lunch on Sunday.
