The 'Big Five' Memoir Questions: Time, Truth, Secrets, People, Publishing

Over the course of five weeks this course focused on the five main questions that arise as you begin to write your life story. Together the group discussed ways to address these big themes whilst looking at real-life case studies, established texts and author interviews. Participants explored their own story, during the workshop and at home, through weekly written prompts along with guidance and feedback from Sally.
