Sat 9 March - Sat 4 May
10am - 11.30am

In this series of eight, 1 1/2 hour writing workshops, author and poet Gerry Boland will help you to get started on your own memoir. "We will examine a wide range of published memoirs, analysing structure, style. choice of topic, pace, language, use of humour etc." explains Gerry. 

"Your memoir can be about whatever you want to be about. These workshops will help you to clarify what you wish to focus on and, importantly, how to approach the writing. The aim is for each participant to have an opening chapter, plus a basic outline of the entire book, written by th end of the series."
