Writing a personal history – always fun!

I love doing one-day workshops for libraries or writing groups because it’s so interesting yet relaxed. No homework, no marking, no having to make certain to be free every Tuesday at six, just a room full of writers. (And, sometimes, someone gives me lunch.)

Here are the details of my next one-day workshop:

Saturday 5th March 10am to 3.45pm: Your Personal History- One Day Writing Workshop with Sue Moorcroft

Do you want to record your overland journey on foot from Poland? Or to remember and preserve your horse drawn childhood? Writing a Personal History is an open opportunity to talk about yourself. Your history, your opinions, your emotions and – love them or hate them – the people in your life. Your personal history is unique.

Whether you’re looking to add your autobiography to the millions sold every year or to give your family an idea of how your history impacts on theirs, this one-day course will:

· help you plan and organise your writing

· provide tips on research

· improve your writing craft

· suggest ways of presenting and preserving your work

· explain self-publishing and publishing

Relax and enjoy it.

Sue Moorcroft wrote the Personal History Course for the London School of Journalism. She also writes novels, short stories, serials, articles, writing ‘how to’ and is the head judge for Writers’ Forum. Her latest novel is Want to Know a Secret? published by Choc Lit.

Venue: Blagreaves Library

Cost: £25, includes tea and coffee throughout the day. Booking essential.

To book a place or for more information telephone 01332 255403 or email blagreaves.library@derby.gov.uk

Look forward to seeing you there.
