Online Workshop: Writing a Memoir

A 2-hour online workshop to learn about life writing and memoir, with novelist Charlie Hill.

Join writer Charlie Hill, for an information and writing workshop for those wanting to write a memoir.

During the session you will take part in writing exercises, and talk about memory and fiction – how one person’s memory of the same event may differ from another person’s, and how to gather together your memories into longer-form prose.

You’ll also learn the practicalities of writing a memoir, and more about the current market for such books.

Writers of all levels are welcome, including beginners.


About the workshop leader:

Charlie Hill lives in Birmingham. He has published two novels, a novella, a memoir, a pamphlet of short stories and several poems.
