Write Your Memoir

Six Month Course September 2024 – February 2025

Memoir is no longer the preserve of the rich and famous. We can all write about our lives.

Have you been thinking about writing your memoir for some time? Have you made a start but are now struggling to make progress? Would you like to receive warm support, guidance and inspiration so that you can make headway with your memoir?

Join me on this six-month course where you’ll learn all the key components of memoir writing. Through the study of published memoirs and writing exercises, you’ll learn how to develop your ideas and improve and experiment with your writing style. You’ll find the right structure for your memoir and there will be no holding you back!

Places are limited to eight so everyone (and their memoirs) are given a lot of attention.

The course outline and recommended reading will be sent once you’ve booked your place. If you’d like to have a chat first, don’t hesitate to email carla@rawwriting.co.uk or call me on 07474 116771.

Carla Jenkins is a writer and teacher and her debut novel, Fifty Minutes, will be published by Hachette as one of their key titles in May 2024, with her second novel due for publication the year after.
