Write your own life story
Do you want to share your experiences and memories, and write powerful stories that people love reading? Would you like to express yourself in a way that means people get to read about the events, places and communities that mean something to you?
Designed to get you writing stories about your life, whoever you are and your level of experience, this five-week course will build your confidence as a memoir writer. By the end you will have written a story from scratch, and be ready to begin more.
Working in a small group of fellow writers with a friendly expert tutor, we’ll look at the basic rules of storytelling and how to get a real-life experience onto the page so others will want to read on. You’ll have a go at bringing scenes to life, and create vivid characters and memorable dialogue. We’ll also focus on editing and rewriting.
By the end of the course, you’ll have produced a real-life story you’re proud of, and that says something about your life and region.
