"Writing Your Life," London, Nov 28

The London Public Library presents…
“Writing your life and other true stories”
~ With guest, author Ross Pennie ~

Saturday, November 28
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
London Central Library, 251 Dundas St, London
In the Galleria Mall (Map here.)

Have you ever considered writing your memoirs or family history? This workshop will introduce you to the tricks and conventions of telling true stories and will show you how to use the techniques of the novel to recount actual events. Whether you want to write for your family or for a wider public, don't miss this workshop.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He has helped many of his students get published, including our guest speaker, Dr. Ross Pennie...

Ross Pennie is the author of The Unforgiving Tides, a doctor’s memoir of Papua New Guinea (Manor House Publishing). Ross has also signed a contract with ECW Press for three medical mystery novels. The first of these, Tainted, came out in April. Dr. Pennie will speak on how to turn ordinary life into dramatic material and will answer questions about how he wrote his memoir and got it published.
