Alserkal Avenue, Dubai's arts hub, presents its third annual summer programme, under the theme 'Sensing Memory'. The series of workshops, lectures, performances, and seminars draws from the UAE’s creative community and beyond to explore the connection between the senses and our personal and collective memories. As part of the season of free-to-attend events, you are invited to attend a two-part workshop led by writer Allison K. Williams to learn the basics of writing a memoir. Participants will discuss dramatic structure, considerate truth-telling, and narrative power. The workshop also provides tips on editing and revision techniques and professional insights into the memoir market. All experience levels are welcome- this workshop is suitable for people with an idea, a draft, or pre-existing material. The workshop is limited to 12 participants. To register, email, with the subject line 'Memoir writing workshop'. Confirmed participants are expected to attend both workshop dates, 25 July and 1 August.
