Writing Your Own Memoir

Writing your memoir can be a wonderfully fulfilling and healing process.  Whether it is for yourself, your children or grandchildren, for publication or self-publishing, a memoir helps make sense of things and offers an opportunity to reflect on the deeper meaning of your life.

In a safe, supportive, confidential space, we will explore our lives in writing; find a voice, purpose, confidence and inspiration; tackle shape, structure and story-telling; practise dialogue (and humour!); consider ethical and spiritual issues; review your experiences in a new and uplifting way. 

Rosie has taught this course at Ammerdown several times, with enthusiastic feedback, and several students have gone on to complete and publish their memoirs.
