What's happening?

Bookchat: You tell the stories your way – life writing as only you know how (and events July 23 onwards)

Is it about writing a whole life story? No, not really. What then? It’s about hundreds and thousands of stories. All yours and only you can do it. That’s what it is. The stories of your life. Little ones, big ones, other people’s stories seen through your eyes. Your opinions on things. Think of Phoebe Waller-Bridge with Fleabag. Think of Karl Ove Knausgaard. The stories will be there for your children or other people’s children. For everyone. You can make us laugh and cry and wonder at the life you’ve led. Angela J. Phillip has a look at how to do it.
