Write your life stories
Learn how to add SPICE to your life stories
Want to write a memoir, a better journal or a blog? Then you need to learn how to write stories from your life in such a way that they are compelling for others to read. Your stories should leap off the page. Using Jo's tried and tested formula for writing stories that leap off the page, called SPICE, you will learn how to write humour, about people, places and emotions.
This course comes with a 60-minute video, eight podcasts and over 100 ideas to get your writing going.
Why Jo? Because Jo spent two years researching what makes a personal story work. Because she has been writing a personal diary for decades and a blog for several years. Jo has also written personal columns for several magazines including Resident Abroad and Expatriate Lifestyle and knows what makes a good story.
