Led by Hermione Lee, Elleke Boehmer, Lyndall Gordon, and Clare Morgan, this workshop will focus on the challenges that life-writers face in finding, dealing with, selecting, and using materials. It is intended for postgraduate students working in life-writing as well as professional and amateur life-writers, irrespective of the stage of their research. Among other issues, the Workshop will deal with how materials and data shapes the writing; how to work with archives (and archivists); and what to make of ‘gaps’ or contradictory clues.
