Do you want to write your own story? Whether it’s a one-off event that had a big impact, or your whole life to let a different world know how things were – you have the tools already. You can tell a yarn. You have your point of view and your own way of doing things. You’ve lived it. And you’ve changed. All you need now is pen and paper. This workshop will guide you in immersing yourself in memory and polishing your technique, but above all it will inspire you to give yourself permission to write. What are you waiting for?
