Memoir Writing

Memoir Writing

Jump start your memoirs and experience how energising and intriguing it is to explore your personal herstory!

For some adults memoir writing can be a therapeutic experience that helps them to heal themselves psychologically. For some women it can be an empowering experience as it gives them the opportunity to tell their story. For others, it can be an enjoyable and reflective process, and an outlet for creativity.

The course will provide intellectual stimulation and an opportunity to improve your writing and literacy skills. The aim is to empower women to find their voice, their own unique writing style and to encourage them to begin writing their memoir. Those writing their family histories will also find this course relevant.
