(with HF16 - funded by Arts Council England)
Would you like to leave a record of yourself and your life and share your memoirs for posterity?
‘Your Story’ is your best legacy to your family and they will want you to do it. Capture those stories and hold them in trust for future generations.
You will develop your story with a group of people who will become your supporters and friends and leave another legacy of a shared experience.
You will learn how to use narrative fiction techniques to tell a compelling story of your life which people will want to read.
We will explore the characters and events in your book; the plot twists and the forks in the road; the pace, structure and 'voice' of your story. We will ask questions and explore:
What else happened? What more can you say? Who else did you know, meet (sub plots and secondary characters). How can we weave these into your tale in order to add depth and intrigue? What are the hooks? What questions do you want to leave dangling to intrigue the reader and keep them reading?
It is your story in your voice; how do you sound on paper and how can we communicate that better? (style)
You will add depth and intrigue to your story and develop a unique voice
This course may change your life for the better!
You will be encouraged to develop a daily writing habit..
Once you get the writing bug it can be addictive!

Thanks for a lovely class, I really enjoyed it. It's been a while since I sat to write anything and I'm slowly starting work on a new book, so I need to get these rusty gears turning.
Thanks for the class and the re assurance that there are possibilities... The first draft /edit process was very useful...
Thanks for the writing workshop on Tuesday. It was good and fun. I fancy signing up for another course on the strength of that one.
....reboot your writing year

First Conti Writers Group of the year
January is slipping away and the new year, which opened with a huge 'Taddah', is followed by silence. The promise of a new year is often overwhelming and the subsequent quiet days can be frustrating. Resolutions freeze with the plummeting temperatures and it is difficult to get motivated.
If you want to re-boot your writing year, join us at the Conti-Writers Group at 8.00pm on Thursday January 22nd for an informal sharing of work with like minded strugglers over a glass of wine.
How much do you want to know about me?
I am a compulsive writer and I want to share some of my writing with you as well as thoughts and ideas about writing and some useful techniques. Welcome and please leave a message.
If any writer's wondering where to start, how to get going again or where they went wrong, this book is full of answers.
