Workshop Details

Memoir: Stepping into our own stories

Memoirs – narratives written about formative, important, memorable (or sometimes best forgotten) parts of an author’s life – have become a mainstay of contemporary publishing.

For those of us who simply want to find a way to organise, think about and understand, or maybe even commit to print, our own story, memoir writing is a powerful instrument.

In our two-hour session we’ll talk a little about what memoir is and, through gentle and non-intrusive writing prompts, open up a tool box to help us connect to our own memory banks, to start making decisions about the kind of narratives we wish to make.

All you’ll need is paper, a pen, a little bit of curiosity and a willingness to take a trip into your own story.

Saturday May 6th, 2023, at 11:00 IRISH SUMMER TIME (2 hours)

Cost: €20.00
