Transformative life writing invites the writer to pinpoint key moments of change and explore the meaning and impact of their experiences. This 4-week course was designed to help new, emerging, and experienced writers spark new stories and maintain momentum with their life writing projects long-term. Writers will gain a deeper understanding of the writing process and learn a unique approach to life stories that will help them draft their best work.
We'll practice journalling as both a pre-writing and reflective exercise, take inspiration from a selection of exemplary readings, learn how to offer valuable feedback on developing stories, and connect with our warm online community to share and support new work.
The complete Spark Your Story program includes six 4-week courses that explore the writer in relation to self, family, friendships, culture, nature, and the world.
