Everything You Need to Know About Writing Memoir with Rosemary Stevens at Story Lounge

Join Rosemary Stevens for an introduction to memoir writing at Story Lounge, our new pop-up at Hay Street Mall.

Applying simple, fun writing exercises, this three-hour workshop focuses on the three cornerstones of memoir; scenes, summary and reflection, to bring your personal story to life in its broader context.
  1. Scenes: the building blocks of memoir. Vivid moments, anecdotes and episodes are the life breath of your story. Using fictional techniques, such as dialogue, description, action and suspense, we will apply creative imagination to convey the emotional truth of lived experience.
  2. Summary: the mortar that holds the story together. Brief context, succinctly explained condenses time, quickening the pace and acting as a bridge from one scene to the next.
  3. Reflection: moments of reflection help the reader understand the meaning embodied in summary and scenes. Using simple techniques to help readers think more about the substance of your story, it becomes more universal, enriching the reading experience.
