How to Write Your Story

How do you successfully put your life on the page? 

Many writers, including those experienced in writing fiction, often consider writing their memoir or using their own life story to inform creative work. 

In this masterclass,  Cathy Rentzenbrink will guide you through the many considerations of life writing:  from thinking about how to structure  your story when life is neither linear nor straightforward, to the role played by  research and recall in the process. She will offer strategies and techniques to help you decide what to include and what to leave out, and share her own experiences of the highs and lows of writing from life to help you successfully put your own story onto the page.

Whether you’re already mid-process or just beginning to gather  thoughts and material, don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the country’s leading writers in the field.
