How do we write about a life? From bestsellers by doctors and lawyers to Norwegian experiments in autofiction, the genre of life writing is bigger and broader than ever. Join Richard Skinner to look at the many and diverse ways you can write about your own life or other people’s. 

Richard Skinner is a novelist, poet and critic. His most recent book, The Mirror, was described as ‘beautifully written . . . immersive . . . captivating’ by the Guardian. As Director of the Fiction Programme at Faber Academy, he created the flagship Writing a Novel six-month course in 2009 and since then has helped hundreds of writers find their voice.
