WEBINAR - Memoir Writing Masterclass

Sat 04 Apr 2020 - 1:30 pm

A practical, creative masterclass, which will inspire you to write a fantastic memoir in your own words.

The Memoir Masterclass is aimed at people who want to tell the story of their life – or the story of a particular episode of their life. Maybe you know you have a great story to tell, but don’t know where to get started?

The Memoir Masterclass will give you the confidence and support you need to tell your own story, in your own words.

Please bring an item of sentimental value or something that tells a story about your life to use in writing exercises.
In a supportive group, we will explore what makes a great memoir or autobiography. We will work on sparking memories, using “free writing” techniques to capture them. We will look at using poetry, prose and other techniques to capture memories, and using objects and photographs to help us to write our stories. The Memoir Masterclass will also look at structure, writing routines and will empower you to continue writing when you get home.

Anne Grange has run Wild Rosemary Writing since 2013. As a freelance editor, she specialises in helping people to tell their own stories and enabling them to publish their memoirs and share them with the world, mostly working with self-published and indie authors.

Anne also works on community projects, such as the recent In Our Day project at Walkley Library, collecting the stories of people with dementia and compiling them into a fascinating book, documenting the colossal changes and challenges of ordinary people living in Sheffield in the twentieth century. She is an adult education tutor and experience course facilitator, specialising in creative writing and writing for wellbeing, and also works with adults with learning disabilities.
Storytelling is very important to Anne – whether memoir, fiction or through poetry, and as a novelist, she runs the Sheffield Novelists group which provides ongoing mutual support for novelists. Anne is the author of Outside Inside and Distortion.
