Make sure the characters that appear in your own story are brought to life on the page
Read the course outline (pdf)
The main character of a memoir is the narrator themselves, while the main character of a biography is the subject of the book. While different skills are required to bring these figures to life, what about those vital minor characters: aunts, neighbours, dogs, teachers? This course will suggest ways of recognising and reconstructing character, so that your figures lift off the page.
This course takes place on Zoom and we will email you a joining link the day before. There will be an opportunity to ask tutor, Frances Wilson, questions during a Q&A and have conversations with your fellow participants in the virtual breakout rooms.
Live captions will be provided by Stagetext.
