Workshop Memoir – Story & Meaning with Nicola Redhouse
Yarra Plenty Regional Library
This event is part of the 11th Annual Booklovers Festival
The most powerful memoirs compel us to read via their story but also move us through their meaning, which is often underlying, symbolic, felt. In this two- hour workshop author Nicola Redhouse takes you through strategies, exercises and discussions that will get you thinking about your personal story in the two modes, and about how to enrich what is inferred.
