In this workshop, you will learn some of the basics of this popular writing genre: how to find the right theme to focus on, how to structure your life story so that it makes for an engaging reading, how to turn yourself and the people in your life into compelling characters and how to seduce your readers by describing your experiences vividly. We will also discuss the role of emotional honesty in writing about ourselves.
