Have you always wanted to tell your story, or that of someone special to you?
Maybe it’s your family history, or about a special time in your life?
We all live such amazing lives, yet rarely pass them on to our children and grandchildren – perhaps because we don’t think we could actually write a whole book or simply don’t know where to even start.
Well, here’s how…
This course will take you through writing a life story – whether it’s an autobiography or a biography – from the first idea through to the final draft, step by step.

Writing a life story is actually quite like writing a novel except you already know the facts; you don’t have to make them up – but that in itself can cause problems.
- Where do you start?
- How do you remember everything that’s important?
- Where do you finish?
- How much should you tell?
- How do you tell it?
