Memoir is a literary term that means from memory. Memoir is an account of the author’s personal experiences – it tries to capture certain highlights or meaningful experiences from the past. Memoir is a unique form of life writing that allows the author to confront and contemplate a significant period in their life and through the creative process share their experience and insights with others. If you have a life story that you have been waiting to write and if you would like to learn more about the memoir genre and participate in creative writing lessons, contact Friars’ Gate.
