Writers are often told to ‘write what you know’, but finding an authentic voice to tell personal stories can be a challenging task.

In this intensive workshop, freelance writer, appearance activist and feminist Carly Findlay shares practical tips and personal advice about life-writing. Discover your ideal memoir voice; draw on your personal experiences to create an authentic narrative, and explore the practicalities of honing, finessing, editing and pitching personal writing.
