Learn how to use memories and experiences from your own life in creative writing. Do you have a story to tell about your past or your family? Do you have thoughts about the world around you that you want to express? A series of writing exercises and prompts will help you tap into writing about your own life. In this workshop we’ll use techniques for sourcing memories and turning your experiences into vibrant pieces of life writing. Suitable for a range of abilities, from people trying creative writing for the first time to more experienced writers who want to try something new and get some inspiration. Participants will just need to bring a pen and a notebook big enough to write in comfortably. £65 Includes tea/coffee. Please bring a packed lunch.
