Shaping your stories to discover the narrative

GENRE: Fiction & Non-Fiction & Life Writing
-
Totleigh Barton

How do you determine which of your many memories can be shaped into a story? What techniques can you use to recall and weave family stories into a narrative, or, looking
further back, choose the most promising elements from your historical research? We will guide you as you begin to shape your material so that it is true to experience but also
serves the needs of your book. We will help you to find the centre of your tale, and the voice in which you tell it, whilst pointing out the common ethical and practical pitfalls to
look out for.
