Where to start? Travel writing and life journeys
WORKSHOP ALMOST FULL. Stories can entrance, engage, even possess us. Every one of us has a story to tell; factual or fictional, cool documentary or heartfelt family journey, practical travelogue or sparkling flight of the imagination. In fact, lives and journeys alike lend themselves to narrative. So how do we begin to turn our travels, memoirs or a lifetime’s voyage into prose? In this workshop we’ll explore — through exercises and creative discussions — how to choose and shape the stories we have to tell, in order to accommodate the rich unpredictability of life, the complexities of character and place, and the way that we are changed over time.
