Event Information

Dubbo Writers' Festival: Introduction to Life Writing - an online workshop with Patti Miller

Due to the current lockdown across NSW, Dubbo Writers’ Festival has moved online.

Do you want to write about your own life or a family member’s life? This is an inspiring and practical introduction to autobiographical writing. It looks at how to begin and how to access memory in a lively way.  It is suitable for beginners as well as those looking for more inspiration. You will be guided through the process in a warm and encouraging atmosphere. Bring pen and paper (or electronic device) as you will be writing!

If you have written or are considering writing a family history, memoir or autobiography, Patti Miller is a world renowned authority on all of the above! She has specialised in teaching memoir and non-fiction writing since 1991 and teaches memoir workshops in London and Paris.

Patti suggests it would be helpful if participants had a copy of ber book Writing True Stories.

Patti is the author of three books about writing, Writing Your Life, The Memoir Book A&U and Writing True Stories, a novel and five memoir/creative non-fiction books. She is published regularly in national newspapers and literary journals, lectured in Literary Studies at UTS and UWS and has taught writing since 1984 at universities, the Faber Academy, Varuna Writers’ House and other writers’ centres, and for community groups in Australia and overseas. Over 50 of her students have been published. 

Patti Miller grew up on Wiradjuri land in Central West NSW.
