Life-Writing Together

June 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th

July 2nd

10am-12.30pm

 

Workshop practitioner: Giovanna Iozzi

Most people have dramatic moments in their lives. The trick for life writers is to edit those moments into something compelling. Taking different forms, (memoir, autobiography, creative non-fiction, travel-writing, confessional prose), life writing is any text where the real-life narrator seems to be telling the truth. Together we’ll study writers including Blake Morrison, Lorna Saga, Tim Lott and Norwegian heavyweight Karl Ove Knausgaard. In each class we’ll use prompts and exercises as well as looking at literary devices in fiction writing to help us shape our own memories and experiences. Students will be able to share their work and receive useful, non-judgemental feedback from a supportive group.

The Art of The Short Story

April 16th, 23rd, 30th,

May 7th, 14th.

10am-12.30pm.

Workshop practitioner: Giovanna Iozzi.

Short stories offer the reader tantalising miniature worlds; if crafted with skill and emotional truth they can have the power and resonance of novels. In these workshops we will be studying extracts from some of the great short story writers, from Anton Chekhov and Katherine Mansfield to contemporary voices like Alice Munro, George Saunders and Kevin Barry. Inspired by writing exercise and what we read we’ll start crafting our own stories, focusing on: beginnings and endings, story arc and structure, point of view, dialogue and characterisation. Students will leave the course with a completed story, anything up to 5000 words.
