Creative Writing Workshop, with Leila Rasheed Creative writing workshop: learn how to write a story based on a childhood memory. Led by author Leila Rasheed.
About this Event

In this 2-hour writing workshop you will learn how to write a fictional story based on a childhood memory. You need to bring your own writing materials and a strong memory from your childhood. The memory could be of a game you used to play, a person you used to know, a place you knew well…or something else completely. You will be asked to (briefly) share your childhood memory verbally, so it should be one you are comfortable sharing with a group of strangers.

We’ll use questions and writing time to start developing the memory into a scene. We’ll talk about what makes a scene, and how a scene can grow into a story. We’ll talk about turning something private (a memory) into something for an audience (a story). We’ll explore the importance, in scenes and stories, of change, using your senses and showing specific details.

This could be useful to people who are considering writing a memoir or starting to write fiction.

Leila Rasheed is a widely-published author. Her most recent children's book, Empire's End, draws on her memories of growing up in Libya. She has taught creative writing for several years, including at the University of Warwick.
