Writing Your Memoir

11th April to 16th May

Thursday Morning 11.00am to 12.30pm

In his new series of writing workshops at The Dock, poet and author Gerry Boland explores the memoir genre. Taking tips, strategies, approaches and styles from a wide range of memoirs, Gerry will help you to decide what kind of memoir you would like to write.

Extracts from acclaimed and lesser-known memoirs will be read and discussed. Writing exercises will play an important role, as you tease out ideas and close in on an overall style and structure. By the end of the course, you should be well on your way to writing that memoir you’ve been thinking about for far too long!

Gerry Boland is a poet and author with ten published books. He has wide experience of leading writing workshops in poetry, short fiction and memoir.

The six workshops run on consecutive Thursday mornings from 11am to 12.30 noon, from 11th April until 16th May. Workshop fee: €60. Contact box office at 071 965 0828 or book online here
