The Australian Writers’ Centre is delighted to present a course on Life Writing with Patti Miller. The course explores creative autobiographical writing and will set you on the journey of writing your life. Patti is the author of Writing True Stories (Allen & Unwin 2017) and she will show you how to shape your experiences into a well written, absorbing story.
Patti will help you to:
And MUCH more.
There will be some readings, discussion and lots of writing with individual comment on your work. By its completion you will have made a start on your life story and have the confidence and techniques to continue.
You know you have a story to tell.
It’s your story.
Participants will need to acquire a copy of the course text, Writing True Stories, (Allen & Unwin 2017 ed.) by Patti Miller, available at all good bookshops.
The course will give you practical guidance but also provide encouragement towards
continuing to write and believing you can document your own life story.
