A memoir is a slice from a person’s life which focuses on a particular theme or lesson or flavor of experience, an aspect of life that is most unusual or fascinating.
Each month class members reminisce, write about and share memorable ‘slices’ from their lives in response to set ‘500 Words’ themed writing topics.
#1 One Moment, This Year Looking back on 2021, what single moment stands out for you? Whether it be loss, love, discovery or disappointment, share your unforgettable moment.
#2 A Memoir - ‘Head for your bookshelf, the library or an online book-store to retrieve a memoir, preferably one which has meant something to you. When did it enter your life?
