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.
