Memoir: facing the difficulties of truth-telling
Is it possible to tell the truth and keep your family, friends and dignity relatively intact? Does everything have to be revealed? And can anything be ‘invented’ in memoir? How far can a writer go in creating ‘life-like’ situations ? We will look at the very real reasons for avoiding the truth, navigate the borderlands with fiction, explore ways of telling the truth and surviving - and find out when searing honesty becomes navel-gazing. This workshop offers creative guidance and practical writing exercises.
