Life Writing

November 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+10

275$
Learn to write about your life (or someone else) in an engaging way.

People tell you that you’ve had an interesting life; you should write a book. But where do you start? This workshop will give writers the skills to write a compelling story that will be a great legacy for future generations.

In this workshop we will explore:

  • How to make your writing more engaging
  • How to write about other people
  • What style you should write in
  • What legal issues you need to know
  • How to write about painful memories
  • The difference between memoir and biography
  • Where to start and what to leave out.

**LUNCH INCLUDED

Your facilitator:

Blaise van Hecke is co-owner and Publisher at Busybird Publishing. She is also a writer and photographer. In 2018, Blaise published three books: her childhood memoir about growing up on a commune, called The Road to Tralfamadore is Bathed in River Water; as co-author in Live Your Truth, Blaise wrote about her 800kms solo pilgrim walk across Spain; also as co-author in Healthy Spirit, Blaise writes about living a creative life. In 2020, 50 Days for Fifty Years: Walking the Camino de Santiago (memoir), was published by Pinion Press.

She runs various workshops for Busybird about writing, editing, and publishing, and is popularly in demand for talks about publishing in general.

What Blaise loves most is nurturing an author through the self-publishing process, and the look on their face when they finally have their book in their hands.
