Have You Ever Thought About Writing Your Life Story?

Thank you to all the life story writers who worked so hard on this course and generously shared their stories with each other. What a diverse group we were, but everyone had fascinating tales to tell, and we enjoyed hearing each others unforgettable tales . Well done to everyone – it was a privilege to spend time working with you at Denman.



Writing your life story or memoir with a specialist life story writer facilitator and a supportive group of like-minded people is a wonderfully reflective and enjoyable occupation.

This course is designed to give you all the help and inspiration you need to plan, write and organise your own unique life story, creating an enduring record of your life and times.

We’ll revisit and recapture tales from the older generation of your family, along with memories of childhood, school days, work and family life. Writing your life story /memoir adds a new personal dimension to a family history project, capturing a piece of social history, passing on your family’s unique heritage and connecting with future generations.

No experience of writing is needed, beginners are welcome, and all the stationery and folders you’ll need are included.

Price includes a comfortable ensuite room with tea/coffee making facilities and varied menus offering a selection of delicious meals, including buffet style cooked breakfast, morning coffee, lunch, tea in the afternoon, and three course evening dinner with coffee/tea served to your table.
