Whether the subject is your father, your grandmother, Judy Garland or Charles de Gaulle, this two-day masterclass is designed to help you clarify your ideas, plan your research, and shape your narrative.

You may be half-way through your project and drowning under material, or you may simply want the encouragement to allow you to begin. Either way, this weekend course is an opportunity to discuss your ideas in a creative, focused, and supportive environment. Through a combination of close reading, writing exercises and group discussion, explore the different ways in which to tell your story. With the expert guidance from tutor, Frances Wilson, cover the building blocks of biography, from finding your voice to finding documents in an archive.
