6 meetings:

We will be exploring ways to record and share life stories.

Writing the stories of our lives, or our family stories, is a valuable and challenging task.  You might wish to do it for yourself; to share with your family; for posterity, or for wider publication.  There are many approaches and possibilities, but how do you know which will suit you?

I have ideas, suggestions and exercises to help you decide.  Some of the topics we’ll be covering over the six sessions are:

  • Where and how do I start?
  • What should I include?
  • Are there things I shouldn’t include?
  • Research, and ways to use it.
  • Plotting and planning a structure.
  • Maintaining the momentum.
  • How do I present it?

Cost: £59.00.  Free to anyone in receipt of a recognised means tested benefit.
