Spring 2016 - this course has now passed.
This course will explore the elements of writing memoir: theme, structure, voice and narrative; character and place. The objective will be to get the story out of your head and onto the page in a safe environment. Participants will look briefly at the work of some master memoirists, but the focus will be on you, and the work you bring into the classroom.
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.Starts: Wed 10 Feb
