Creative Writing: Memoir and Family History is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

Everyone has a story to tell! This informal session will include a series of exercises to help you develop ideas into words.

Is there an episode in your life you want to capture on paper? Perhaps there’s an ancestor or relative whose story holds particular interest and you don’t want them to be forgotten. Or maybe you’ve researched the family tree and want to bring it together in narrative form. This workshop will provide tips on how to research, write and edit these personal stories.

All levels are welcome.

The programme includes a light lunch as well as morning coffee.
