A new memoir writing course starting in October - details below.  Please let friends know and share on Facebook.

Write a MEMOIR?  

Have you got a story that needs to be told? A big event from your life?

Do you want to explore how to plan it, write it, print it and sell it?

Do you want to know how to become an author, with a book for sale?

I’m running a Memoir Writing course

Contact me and join course at for updates –
or here on my blog in the email me box

When : 6:30 - 8pm on Thurs 6th Oct  2016 until 24th Nov 2016.

Where: The Big Green Bookshop, Old Brampton Rd, N22 - near Turnpike Lane station

The cost for the whole course will be £96 (low income - discuss with facilitator/teacher.).

There’ll be 8 sessions.

Each week I’ll cover a different aspect of memoir writing – topics will be:

1. What’s your story?  
2. Plot and backstory.
3 .Beginnings (and endings).
4. Character and dialogue.
5. Timeline.
6. Truth, lies and libel. 
7. The narrator/editing.
8. Publishing, publicity and agent hunting?

I give short writing exercises throughout and constructive positive feedback about your writing.

 Seriously though? Do you really want to face the challenges of writing a memoir?

You’ll find out by the end of this course, you really will. And you’ll have FUN!

I’m a poet and an author – I have 3 books for sale – one is a memoir, which took me 5-10 years to write. I learnt a lot.  I used to teach undergraduates at London Metropolitan University and at Birkbeck University of London. I have an MA in Professional Writing.

Put Memoir Course in the subject  line.
