It’s easy to feel a little lost when you are starting a new project, or revisiting an old one. Whether you want to mine your own experience for a memoir or experiment with fictionalising it, Lost and Found will guide you through transforming your raw material into storytelling that that will engage your readers and deepen your insight into the role of the subconscious in the making of meaning.

Best-selling authors Liz Jensen and Wyl Menmuir, whose work spans both fiction and non-fiction, will cover working with memory, grief, loss and transformation, and help you to explore the inner stories that are longing to be told while giving you the tools to craft and shape them – and the confidence to see your project through to the end.
