We interviewed esteemed memoirist and mentor Barbara Brooks ahead of her multi-week course at Writing NSW, Memoir and Memories.
‘What draws writers to memoir might be having a story from life that won’t let you go, something that lodges in the imagination.’
‘You’re writing about real people, people you know, perhaps your family, your ex-husband, your children. How do you do this? It can be a challenge but we have to rise to it.’
