In the words of T.S. Eliot, 'We had the experience, but missed the meaning.' Writing your own story is a wonderfully healing and fulfilling process. Whether it is for your family, publication or just for yourself, a memoir can help make sense of your experience and provide an opportunity to reflect on the deeper meaning of your life. On this safe, supportive course, you will learn ways to make your memoir the best it can be, reflecting on audience, purpose and inspiration. You will study issues of structure, shape, voice and tense, practise dialogue and humour, consider spiritual and ethical issues and look at some contemporary memoirs.
