Memoir Writing: Writing the Self and Others with Susan Midalia

Memories can be voluntary or unbidden; pleasurable or painful; recalled from childhood or the more recent past. They are often sensorial, imbued with our desires and fears, and are always subjective. We use memory to build a narrative about ourselves and our lives, stories which can either remain fixed or shift with the passing of time. In this workshop, short story writer and novelist Susan Midalia will help you to find ways of creating a voice and honouring your memories in ways that matter to you, and which – if you choose to reveal your stories – will matter for other readers.

She is also an experienced freelance editor and workshop facilitator, the judge of several literary awards, and a board member of writing WA and Margaret River Press.
