Life Writing & Memoir: digging deeper

  • Masonic Hall, Budleigh Salterton 1 West Hill, Budleigh Salterton Devon, EX9 6BW (map)

Join Emma at Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival. Whether you are writing about your own life or your family’s, or about someone from the past, you’ll need the tools to make your story accurate and compelling. This afternoon workshop will dig deeper, taking advantage of strictly limited numbers. We’ll exploring ways to tackle your project, look at what forms, tools and resources will be most useful to you, and think about the research and creative processes you might use to bring it alive. We will try some short, exploratory exercises, and also look at some examples of exciting life writing by a variety of writers.
