In this workshop, Josephine will outline the different forms of life writing, and explore how real-life experiences and creative writing techniques can be used to write effective and memorable memoir, autobiography and biography. Participants can bring draft auto/biography, but we will focus mainly on life-writing exercises, with feedback and with tips galore. Participants will discover how much fun it is to write a life!
