Whether or not you’re writing about your own life or someone from history, you’ll need the tools to make your story accurate and compelling. Emma will show you how to make your own or others’ real lives come alive for the reader, without writing fiction. In this practical workshop, she’ll explore how to find the facts you need, and craft them into a compelling narrative; you’ll leave with new ideas and inspiration for your memoir or life writing. Emma is a creative writing mentor and tutor and runs the hugely popular blog This Itch of Writing.
