Go Write Yourself: Memoir Writing with Mike Cavanagh (SOLD OUT)
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.
This workshop is for those who've taken the plunge and embarked on writing their memoir, or are looking towards publishing. We'll be focusing on how you get your memoir completed, what you need to do to really get it completed once you think you have, and ways to approach getting your memoir published. 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.
This workshop will run entirely online over Zoom. Participants will receive an invitation link to join the sessions before the first session after they have booked a ticket.
You will need to register for a free Zoom account and download the Zoom app onto your device before the workshops. This process should take less than 15 minutes, but is recommended to do ahead of time.
