Your Story: A Memoir Workshop

Saturday 10 August, 9:30am - 12:30pm

Trust Waikato,

4 Little London Lane

$30 cost, registration required.

Figuring out how to tell your story is the most challenging aspect of memoir writing. In this workshop, Caroline will look at memoir basics (what memoir is and isn’t, the role of point of view, ethics and permissions, universal themes, and the road to publication). However, the secret sauce of this workshop is the detailed look at the role of time in memoir—where on the timeline you are standing to tell your story—plus how to tackle the one biggest issue she sees in clients’ work: story structure. Caroline will take you through various structures to lay over your work to help you decide which is best to carry your story. 


The workshop costs $30 and includes morning tea. Registration required. 

The Trust Waikato Building is on Little London Lane, off London Street, Hamilton. The Trust has a sizable carpark and there's lots of parking outside and close by.
