StoryFest Writer's Workshop 2017

Travel: Memoir

Do you love to travel and enjoy writing? Have you always wanted to write about your journeys, perhaps even publish articles or a book about them, but don’t know where to begin? Do you want to create a legacy of some of your travels for you and your family to continue to appreciate? If so, then sign up for StoryFest’sTravel: Memoir Writers’ Workshop with Laurie Gough, a seasoned travel writer and accomplished memoirist.

Gough's writing includes the award-winning Kite Strings of the Southern Cross: A Woman’s Travel Odyssey (also subtitled as Tales of the South Pacific), the highly acclaimed Stolen Child: A Mother’s Journey to Rescue Her Son from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and numerous articles. She will not only help you to find ‘the story’ in your travels but provide some of the ways to borrow fiction-writing techniques to best craft a memoir based on your explorations and experiences.

Space is limited to 18 participants on a first-paid first-reserved basis through the online ticket service at:
