Writing memoirs can lead to emotionally difficult territory. How much of what you write will be the truth? And how do you select what to write about?

In this 2-hour workshop, wordsmith Keith Whelan will help you choose a subject, plan, focus and begin a memoir.

Through memory and writing exercises, one-on-one sharing and feedback, you'll get to draft the first section of your memoir.

You'll explore the differences between autobiography and memoir, address the idea of self-disclosure, and discuss the tension between emotional and factual truth.

Friday 26 May
1pm - 3pm
The View Room, Wollondilly Library
Bookings are required.

Participants will receive a copy of the facilitator’s workshop presentation as a toolkit to help them with their writing after the conclusion of the workshop.
