HOW TO WRITE A MEMOIR
with Mark McCrum
£30.00 per person
PLEASE NOTE THIS WORKSHOP IS TAKING PLACE IN THE HAYLOFT OF THE TALBOT, HIGH STREET, CUCKFIELD RH17 5JX
The workshop will be limited to 12 people to give everyone an opportunity to produce some written work and to review it. Tea or coffee will be available.
For those who are thinking of writing a memoir, are part way through, have finished their first draft, or are just fans of the genre, this workshop will cover all the bases. What is memoir? How does it differ from autobiography? How do I write about people close to me and yet remain honest? How do I unlock and reimagine old memories? Should I invent dialogue or even fictionalise aspects of the past? How should I structure my story?
Mark McCrum has taught master classes in memoir for the Guardian and the University of East Anglia, run courses and workshops for Ways with Words and at a range of literary festivals, and mentored ex-pupils as they finish and publish their books.
