SIAN PRIOR Workshop 1 – Life writing & memoir for beginners

Mildura Writers Festival

Event Date: 7 July 2018
Author / Presenters: Dr Sian Prior

* For those thinking about writing a memoir, but are not sure how to start.

Life writing requires a thoughtful excavation of the self and an empathy with your imagined readers. In this workshop we will explore: how to separate the ‘story’ you want to tell from the ‘situation’ you are describing; how to find the right ‘voice’ for your story; and how to create vivid ‘characters’ from real people.

Dr Sian Prior teaches creative writing at RMIT University and the author of ‘Shy: a memoir’.

On Saturday 7 July 2018 at 1:30pm
