Summer 2016 - this course has now passed.
The building blocks of writing memoir will be reviewed in this practical, hands-on course with an emphasis on voice and narrative arc. Good writerly habits will be encouraged to foster productivity in this most autobiographical of genres. Sessions will include tuition on topics from characterisation to revision, with reference to published memoirs; but the focus will be on you, the participants, and the work you bring into the classroom. This course is aimed at writers with some previous experience in the genre.
Ivy Bannister has written a memoir, Blunt Trauma; a book of short stories, Magician; a poetry collection, Vinegar and Spit; a number of plays for RTÉ radio, and more than fifty pieces for Sunday Miscellany and The Living Word.
