Life Writing with Renée Stanton

Life Writing with Renée Stanton


Life Writing allows people to write about their own lives and not get bogged down in plot, character, beginnings and endings. Everybody has stories to tell, drawn from their own experience and Life Writing can give them a voice. We all have different life experiences and nobody’s life is so mundane that it can’t be written about.

These six sessions will provide opportunities for new subject areas about which to write. We will reflect on writing for ourselves and writing to engage and sustain the interest of others; finding different voices with which to write; thinking about perspectives; finding ways of organising our writing; experimenting with style and form.

These sessions will build on the previous ones but will also be accessible to newcomers. We will also read some examples of Life Writing together (poetry as well as prose) and share our thoughts and emotional responses.

5th, 12th, 19th, 26th March + 2nd, 9th April
