The aim of the workshops is to bring out the stories lurking in all of us and to share them in an open and supportive environment.

This family history writing workshop will cover key ingredients and useful advice for writing your family’s history, including ways of bringing people and places to life, and thinking about a shape or structure.

Nick Barlay is the author of four widely acclaimed novels, including Hooky Gear which was mentioned among Granta’s ‘Best of Young British Novelists’ in 2003. He was born in London to Hungarian Jewish refugee parents, and his first non-fiction book, Scattered Ghosts, explores the story of his family over two centuries. It was longlisted for the Wingate Prize 2015. He has also written short stories, award-winning radio plays and wide-ranging journalism, including a long-running series about London for the Times. He regularly teaches fiction and life writing, as well as Guardian Masterclasses on writing a family history.
