On the 25th June, one month from today, I am delighted to be doing an event, That’s Not How I Remember It!, with Alison Baverstock, as part of the Kingston Connections Festival of Stories. I will be talking about writing memoir, my poetry map Amniotic City, and my latest project, Over the Fields, a memoir about a piece of local greenbelt where generations of Furlongs have explored and played as children. Here is the official blurb from The Rose Theatre’s web site, where the event takes place. Hope to see you there!
Lucy Furlong is a creative writer who is fascinated by the effect that place has on us; how where you grow up affects you at the time – and impacts on your life in future. Alison Baverstock has recently written about how to manage highly personal writing projects – and what to do with them once you have finished. Should they be shared or left in a drawer for others to discover in future? This event offers a fascinating opportunity to consider both the writing and sharing of work based on memory.
Lucy Furlong recently completed an MFA in Creative Writing at Kingston and her work has been widely published. Dr Alison Baverstock is Course Leader for Kingston’s MA Publishing and has written about the mechanics of writing and publishing.
