Writing from Life

Every life is filled with stories – our own, those of our ancestors, even the ones we might have heard from a stranger on a train… Faber novelist Lucy Wadham, bestselling author of 'The Secret Life of France', will coax out the story from your life experience. Whether you’re interested in writing fiction or memoir, Lucy will help you to hone the skills that are required for a good novel.
