National Centre for Writing: An Introduction to the Memoir with Monique Roffey (Online)
Mon 25 Jan 2021 to Mon 12 Apr 2021
Do you want to tell your own story? In this course, led by award-winning writer Monique Roffey, you’ll gain the confidence to write your own story, develop an understanding of how memoirs are put together, and the ways shame and taboo might hold you back from writing. Book by 9th December for Earlybird rate!

You’ll be exposed to a wide variety of memoirs told through a range of forms – from memoirs written in the first person, or even second-person point of view, to memoirs told in snapshots, experimental montage, and even graphic memoirs.

A substantial portion of the texts used in this course will be written by non-professional writers, so, whether you’ve got previous writing experience or not, you’ll find work written by people easily relatable.

Monique Roffey is the author of seven books, six novels and a memoir.  Her memoir, With the Kisses of His Mouth traces a personal journey of sexual self-discovery and has become a cult classic. She is a Lecturer in Creative Writing at the Manchester Writing School, Manchester Metropolitan University, and regular tutor for the National Centre for Writing.

Designed by the University of East Anglia and the National Centre for Writing.
