Go Write Yourself: Memoir Writing with Mike Cavanagh

hero
As part of the South Coast Writers Centre's Online Writing Workshop Program, memoir author Mike Cavanagh presents a two-part workshop series divided into sessions for beginners and intermediate.

If you've ever thought about writing a memoir, or you've started and got stuck, the beginner's workshop is for you. The intermediate workshop is for those who've taken the plunge and embarked on writing their memoir. Both workshops will be run over three sessions each.

Beginners
If you've ever thought about writing a memoir, or you've started and got stuck, this workshop is for you. We'll focus on how to get your story underway and how to provide yourself with ideas and support for getting to the end in one piece. At the end you will (i) believe that you should and can write a memoir; (ii) know some good stuff about how to write it; and, (iii) have some ideas and things to follow up to get ideas and support as you write. Oh, and be warned – fun will be had!

Intermediate
This workshop is for those who've taken the plunge and embarked on writing their memoir. We'll be focussing on how you get your memoir completed and what you need to do to really get it completed once you think you have! Time to be brave and move from being a writer to a (gentle) critic, editor, proof-reader; and, like Eliza Doolittle's dad (the Stanley Holloway one), how to approach others to do some of the work for you. Manuscript assessment will be available if arranged during the workshop.

Between Sunday 7 June 2020 1:00 PM and Sunday 5 July 2020 1:00 PM

Location
