ArtsFest: Make a Mark with Your Memories

Do you want to tell the stories of your life? How can you create a lasting record that others will want to read? Helen Victoria Anderson will talk about her decision to publish her moving book ‘Piece by Piece: Remembering Georgina: A Mother’s Memoir’.

Workshop participants will then be encouraged to start scribbling, exploring ways of making their own ‘true stories’ truly compelling. Helen has an MA in Creative Writing (Distinction) from Teesside University. She won the Ink Tears Flash Fiction Contest 2015 and the Bridgwater Homestart Short Story Competition 2013.

Her creative life-writing, short stories and poems have been published in many literary magazines and her poetry chapbook Way Out was published by the Black Light Engine Room Press in 2017. She is a member of Lapidus (Writing for Wellbeing) and holds a Preparing to Teach in Lifelong Learning qualification.
