Event Description

Your invitation:  You have a story to tell. It’s time to bring it to the page. Our ‘Memories to Memoirs’ introductory online course is perfect for those looking to start documenting their life through written stories. It will give you an insight into life writing, and you’ll be bursting with ideas ready to start your memoir. 

Whether you’re hoping to get your memoir published, or to pass it on to family as part of your legacy, or if you’re writing just for fun, this course will help you feel motivated and excited to start writing.  

Course Dates:  

  • Part 1: Tuesday 3rd November 10:30 am - 12 pm.  
  • Part 2: Tuesday 10th November 10:30 am - 12 pm. 
  • Part 3: Tuesday 17th November 10:30 am - 12 pm.  

Process:

  • We talk through you through what a memoir is and isn’t.  
  • We explore how you can uncover material from your life to write about and we’ll arm you with tools to allow you to start documenting your life, so you never miss out on another story.  
  • Each week there will be a short homework task, helping you build momentum.  

By the end of the course: 

  • You’ll have a clear idea about your memoir idea and theme, ensuring it is engaging and full of passion.  
  • You’ll have started over four mini-stories/ memory snippets that you can start to expand.  
  • You’ll have a clear understanding of the mindset and writing routine needed to get your memoir out of your head and onto the page.  

Cost - £99 (£90, with 10% discount, to all fully subscribing AMED Members by using the code ‘AMED’)
