Two inspiring, life-story writing weeks in unspoilt Tuscany

Thousands of people who would like to write their life story, or at least a part of it, but just don’t know where to start. How do you capture on paper all the interesting, exciting, amusing, inspiring things that have happened in your life? And how to you make them into a series of stories, or a longer memoir, that other people really want to read? Who better to help you than Jo Parfitt, author, journalist, teacher, blogger, conference speaker and poet, who has helped more than 100 authors get into print.

We are running two inspiring Write Your Life Stories weeks with Jo this year with Jo. Each one is the perfect first step for any writer wanting to develop the skills and confidence necessary to move into writing memoir, non-fiction, articles or blogs. It’s designed to help both enthusiastic beginners and more experienced writers. Many of her students have gone on to publish full-length books.

The Write Your Life Stories creative writing courses are designed to help you produce your best work, to find your true writer's 'voice' and to write authentically. You will also have the perfect opportunity to make new friends in the company of like-minded people, learning new writing techniques with skilled help from Jo ... and enjoying unspoilt Italy and, of course, fantastic food and wine.Your hosts at the watermill, Italy
