Time: 2pm – 4pm
Duration: 8 Weeks
Cost: €220/€200 Members
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. The course is suitable both for beginners, and those who are working on a first draft.
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.
