Tony Wailey: Life Writing Workshop
Venue: Facebook
Time: 10am

Life writing is more than simply putting words down on paper, it’s a process of feeling, remembering and shaping your experiences. This workshop, led by Tony Wailey,historian and author of eight books, including pocket size novels and three collections of poetry, is designed to develop your awareness of those inner and outer ways of thinking, feeling, knowing and realising. Using the documentary from Your Local Arena, The Football Men, we will look at Busby, Stein and Shankly to piece together a tale. No interest or knowledge of football is required.
