Pen your life story

Wairarapa Word’s free monthly public programme of events opens with Tales from Wales, with Welsh folklorist Peter Stevenson this Saturday at Carterton Community Courthouse.

March’s guest is Charlotte Squire with her workshop, How to Write a Memoir, Life Story or Family History.

The workshop is aimed at aspiring authors and will share advice on how to turn ideas and memories into a basic framework of a life story, what to do with mountains of photos, how to publish, and more.

Writing teacher Squire supports people from all over Aotearoa to write their life stories.

She has written and produced 19 books, many more songs, and thousands of blogs and articles over the past 20 years.

Squire will beam into the Carterton Community Courthouse from her home in Tākaka, Golden Bay, for this 90-minute workshop on Sunday, March 10 at 4pm.

Participants need to bring their own laptop or pen and paper.

This monthly series is presented by Wairarapa Word and Wairarapa Library Service, and Squire’s workshop, like all of the events, is free-of-charge, but koha is appreciated.

Support for the programme is also received from the community, including Carterton Communities Scheme, Almo’s Books and Carterton Events Centre.

From March onwards, most events will be held on the first Sunday afternoon of the month at 4pm in the Community Courthouse.

To be kept in the loop, send a “sign me up” email to receive news of future programmes to [email protected].

Tales from Wales with Peter Stevenson will be held on Saturday, February 24, starting at 2pm.
