Everyone has a real life story to tell, whether witnessed or lived through. It's easy to tell such stories orally. But, writing them down can sometimes feel like a daunting task!
How to Write Memoirs is a crash course on writing personal stories. By the end of class, you'll have practised three ways to write your own experiences, all with the ease of sharing stories in a casual conversation.
Minimum age for this workshop: 8 years oldOnline class duration: 7 days
How to Write Memoirs is taught by Filipino writer Dr. Joem Antonio. A published author and playwright, he holds a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from UP Diliman and is an eight-time Palanca Award winner. He believes that writing is a skill that can be learned by even those who weren't magically "born with the talent." Through his writing courses and workshops, he teaches writing as a science, leaving students with clear methods that allow them to move their writing projects forward.
We conduct our online classes using Google Classroom, Drive, and other Google services, which students may access through a personal Google Account. All coursework (text lectures and writing exercises) are available at the start of class and are meant to be accomplished at the student's own pace within the class duration. The class includes a Q&A with Dr. Joem and an optional call with a personal writing coach. Those who submit all required writing exercises by the deadline will receive a digital certificate. Students aged 8-12 are required to have a parent or guardian to assist going through coursework. More info >>
