The write stuff: Biff Ward – family memoir, writing your life and writing it well

Gungahlin Library ACT Gungahlin

Wednesday August 29th

Everyone has a story (or many) to tell. Memoir is a story encompassing a slice or aspect of your life. Telling a story in a café or at a barby is a different process from crafting your story on paper. This session will give you some tips on how to approach your life-writing.

The topics to be covered are:

Writing from ‘I’ – finding your voice.

What is the question? The mystery? The emotional journey?

Why will the reader keep turning the page?

Plumbing the depths of your topic.

Biff Ward is the author of the literary memoir, “In my mother’s hands”, which was short-listed for the NSW Premier’s Prize for non-fiction 2015 and the WA Premier’s Prize for 2016, long-listed for the Stella Prize 2015 and winner of the Canberra Critics’ Circle Award 2014 for non-fiction. Her novella “In 1974”, was one of the winners of the Griffith Review novella competition, Storied Lives, for 2017. In 1984, her ground-breaking book on child sexual abuse, Father-Daughter Rape, was published in the UK and US. She is currently finalising her memoir about the Vietnam War.
