These workshops with Alex and her guest authors, are for anyone interested in writing a memoir, or wants to in use their own life as material in a novel or short stories. If you are writing fiction, the exercises will give you plenty of material for those telling details that bring a work alive.

We will do writing exercises to trigger memories, and look at examples of different types of memoir.

Just as in a novel we enjoy a beginning, middle and end, a memoir needs a structure. We will look at the different structures you can adopt to help shape your narrative and help you plan your project. Lots of hands-on creative writing exercises to get you going, or keep you going. Beginners and experienced writers very welcome.
