The Art of Writing Memoir with Sarah Malik


How do you draw from personal experiences to write compelling memoir? Join Sarah Malik, author of the critically acclaimed memoir Desi Girl: On Feminism, Race, Faith and Belonging for a workshop diving into the power of memoir writing and telling one’s truth as a political act.

In this writing course, we will discuss some non-fiction literary forms, such as memoir, essays, creative non-fiction and theme-driven autobiographical work and the differences between them, in helping situate the participant’s own work within this genre.

We will look at different literary devices and techniques to help create a unique literary voice. Participants will learn how to treat themselves as a character, excavating their own inner landscape and histories to discover the story they were meant to tell.

The course will draw from examples of modern writers who create stylised personal perspectives, including Alice Pung, Maxine Ben
