The course will examine what it means to write a life – either one’s own or someone else’s. The focus will be very much on individual practice but will be stimulated by short weekly readings that will be distributed before each session. The course will help develop the practice of life-writing through a mixture of practical workshops and critical appreciation of the autobiography and memoirs of other writers. Students will be encouraged to write their own material and to workshop each other’s writing in class.
Suitable for writers at all levels
