MEMOIR - Tutor Elaine Ouston
We all have a wealth of stories to tell and one of the great joys is to be able to write those stories for others.
A memoir is a great opportunity to express an individual story in a unique manner that is not limited to chronological order. Readers expect them to be intimate and to provide personal insights into the lives of the characters.
While you can exercise creative license in the structure, style and even formatting of the work, there are technical rules that must be followed. However, the writing should reflect the writer's character and creativity.
How to get this right to make an interesting and compelling read is covered in this workshop.
