Haringey Literature Live Workshops: Life Writing Fiction
7th, 14th, 21st May, 10am-12.30pm
Workshop practitioner: Rebecca Swirsky
Together through these three workshops we will consider how writing about our lives can help us capture people and places, the ordinary and the extraordinary – experiences which are unique and which make us who we are. How do we write about ourselves without becoming too confessional, and what are the ethics of writing about those we know? Is there ever a clear line between fact and fiction? Using texts from contemporary fiction writers and from participants we will begin several life-writing pieces, using prompts that may then be added to our writing ‘tool kit’.
