Writing Memoir @ Rippon Lea

The ballroom of stunning Rippon Lea was the perfect setting for last night's Writing Memoir event with celebrated Australian writer, Alice Pung. The accomplished young author led a transfixed audience of addicted writers through some key elements of writing memoir, including characterisation, dialogue, setting and plot. There was plenty of room for anecdotes from her own life and memoir, as well as exploration and workshopping of some of these themes by participants.

Alice Pung was impressive in her passion, skilled delivery and audience engagement. I think there was some growth in writing wisdom for all who attended, as well as rekindled enthusiasm for  that solitary fingers-to-keyboard pursuit that is writing. 

With thanks to Writers Victoria and the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival for hosting this special event. I've come away with renewed inspiration to continue the journey!
