This workshop looked at how you can turn your life into fiction. After examining examples from various writers, participants discussed how to select material from their own lives, did some short writing exercises and had the opportunity to read their work and receive comments. Participants came fully prepared to talk about an unusual moment in their life.

“I’ve started my memoirs three times but I always give up.”

“I don’t know where to begin.”

This workshop provided a toolkit for writing your memoirs, whether for the grandchildren, or for publication.  Using examples of printed texts and lots of juicy ideas, Miriam Halahmy lead us into the art of getting started and keeping going. There were writing exercises during the session and feedback was given for those bold enough to share their work aloud.
