A Practical Introduction to Life Writing (2)

Josephine Jules Andrews

Everyone has a story to tell.  Life writing might most simply be defined as the art of writing from life.  Recent years have seen an extraordinary rise in its popularity, from traditional forms of memoir, biography and personal essays, to blogs, postings on social network sites and tweets. This course will provide an introduction to life writing through examples, practical exercises and discussion of written work. Classes will include voice, genre and types of life writing, using memory, the boundaries of fiction and non-fiction and writing time in memoir.  Suitable for anyone who would like to begin life writing or develop their life writing skills.

This course continues from and builds on the work done in Autumn and is suitable for those who have completed Session 1 or are writers who would like to develop their life writing skills.
