Creative Writing Workshop - Memoir and Family History

This workshop will provide tips on how to research, write and edit personal stories.

Is there an episode in your life you want to capture on paper? Perhaps there’s an ancestor or relative whose story holds particular interest and you don’t want them to be forgotten. Or maybe you’ve researched the family tree and want to bring it together in narrative form. This workshop will provide tips on how to research, write and edit these personal stories.

All levels are welcome.

The programme runs from 10am to 2.30pm and includes a light lunch as well as morning coffee.
