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.

About the Facilitator: Dr Lee Kofman is a Russian-born, Israeli-Australian author of three fiction books and two memoirs: Imperfect (Affirm Press, 2019), which was shortlisted for Nib Literary Award 2019, and The Dangerous Bride (Melbourne University Press, 2014), co-editor of Rebellious Daughters (Ventura Press, 2016) and editor of Split (2019, Ventura Press) – anthologies of personal essays by prominent Australian authors. Her short fiction, creative non-fiction, journalism and poetry have been widely published in Australia, US, UK, Scotland, Israel and Canada.
