Workshops and Projects

SIAN PRIOR MEMOIR WORKSHOPS

Sion Prior


Life writing (including memoir) involves much more than a description of ‘what happened to me’. It requires a thoughtful excavation of the self and an empathy with your imagined readers. In this workshop we will explore: how to separate the ‘story’ you want to tell from the ‘situation’ you are describing; how to find the right ‘voice’ for your story; and how to create vivid ‘characters’ from real people (including yourself.

Dr Sian Prior teaches creative writing at RMIT University, Writers Victoria and The School of Life. She is a columnist for The Age and the author of ‘Shy: a memoir’ (Text Publishing)
