Memoir – Your Personal Treasure Trove
First we must begin. A blank page, a computer or pen, pencil. To become a writer there is one imperative and that is to write. You must begin. You only develop as a writer by writing, one day at a time. Reading is your guidebook but writing is the work. Sometimes, you’ll surprise yourself. Miracles happen. They really do. The most unexpected pops up, punches you full on and begs to be written about.
The process of unlocking the path to those deeper stories is also about freeing the imagination.
‘Everyman’s memory is his private literature.’ Aldous Huxley
I believe that all writing, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, is about storytelling. And each one of us has our own unique point of view, our memories, dreams, vision of the world. You and I might have lived through an identical experience, been hand in hand in the same room, but what we see, learn, feel will be coloured by our own individual view of life, and our recall of it will be unique.
This workshop is about discovering the YOU in the words. The special YOU who is itching to put his or her individual experience on the page.
Together, we’ll learn how to plumb the depths of your imagination, learn how to play with it, to include other characters, to craft it and communicate it.
