Event Description

Workshop practitioner: Giovanna Iozzi
£90 for 6 x 2.5 hour sessions
Have you ever thought of turning your personal experience into life writing? Most people have dramatic moments in their lives, stories to tell and a unique voice. Taking different forms (memoir, autobiography, creative non-fiction, travel-writing, confessional prose), life writing is any text where the real-life narrator seems to be telling the truth. In this 6 week course you will learn how to shape your story into something as compelling as the best fiction. In each class we’ll use prompts and exercises as well as looking at extracts from published life writers including Tobias Wolff, Angela Ashworth, Tim Lott and Karl Ove Knausgaard for inspiration. Whether you’re new to life writing, or whether you want to take life writing further, the course will offer expert tuition and non-judgemental feedback from a supportive group.

"I absolutely loved the Life Writing Course! Giovanna was a fantastic tutor: encouraging and inspirational.  She made everyone feel relaxed so that sharing our work aloud felt easy and natural.  Her supportive manner was excellent; she gave very helpful advice and "pushed" us gently but firmly out of our comfort zones. The range of extracts we explored as stimulus was super and the writing exercises were fun.  The group was lovely: we jelled quickly and the friendly atmosphere added a lot to our enjoyment and development.  I can't wait for the next course!" Anne-Marie
