Telling It Tough

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 9 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Megan Blandford, Benjamin MacEllen, John Richards

When life gets tough, emotions can get intense. Many people say how much writing can help, both during and after the tough times. John Richards talks with Megan Blandford (I’m Fine and Other Lies) and Benjamin S MacEllen (A Cut Closer to Whole) about their memoirs. How much did they rely on notes and diaries? Did they talk to people around them about their experiences? Did they write for themselves, or was it as much about helping others with similar experiences. And how close did they get to telling it tough?
