Writing Workshop: From Memoir to Fiction

Miriam Halahmy

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.

Miriam Halahmy has published short and long fiction and poetry for adults, teens and children. She is an experienced facilitator and runs writing workshops in North London and for English PEN. She is Convenor of North London SCWBI Critque group, a member of the Highgate Poets and the Society of Authors. Her novel, HIDDEN, was published in October 2010 (Meadowside Books). Miriam writes a blog offering tips and inspirations to writers :miriamhalahmy.blogspot.com/
