Hamilton Book Month: Memoir Panel Chair + Memoir Workshop : 9–10 August 2024

By June 30, 2024No Comments

I am delighted to be returning to take part in Hamilton Book Month 2024. I’ll be appearing at two events:

Memoir Panel: Friday 9th August, 6.30–8pm. Join Caroline Barron as she chairs a memoir panel with panellists Ngāhuia te Awekōtuku, Emma Wehipeihana (Espiner) and Craig Hoyle.

Memoir Workshop: Saturday 10th August, 9.30am – 12.30pm. Figuring out how to tell your story is the most challenging aspect of memoir writing. In this workshop, Caroline will look at memoir basics (what memoir is and isn’t, the role of point of view, ethics and permissions, universal themes, and the road to publication). However, the secret sauce of this workshop is the detailed look at the role of time in memoir—where on the timeline you are standing to tell your story—plus how to tackle the one biggest issue she sees in clients’ work: story structure. Caroline will take you through various structures to lay over your work to help you decide which is best to carry your story.
