Memoir / Life Writing

This course will suit complete beginners, as well as those who have already begun to write about their lives. The aim will be to improve writing skills and learn about voice, structure, and how to handle dialogue, memory and authenticity. We will look at examples of memoir writing for modelling purposes and will use personal photographs as inspiration. The sharing of experiences and offering of constructive criticism within a small group will quickly enhance confidence. Reflecting on our lives and learning how to tell our stories effectively is a wonderful skill. By the end of the week some of your memories will be vividly told and down on paper for generations to come.

An optional afternoon visit to Dylan Thomas's Boathouse and Writing Shed in Laugharne is included in the price.
