Write life stories: memories of place
Workshop Presenter: Rae Luckie
Date: Saturday 10 September
Time: 2.15 pm to 4.15 pm
Venue: Seabreeze Room
While we focus on character and events in life story writing, place is sometimes neglected. Place is not just a physical location—places are imbued with memories. Rae draws on David Malouf’s book 12 Edmondstone Street, which combines autobiography with the ways objects and places build up our ideas of reality and shape our fabrications. Places, personal objects, treasures and souvenirs hold memories, and there is often a story behind these. In this workshop, you can explore how sensory details can create settings that will evoke the era and mood to enhance your life stories.
