Memory and transformation
Oxford Central Library, 10.30am
This masterclass will concentrate on memory and its transformation into works of fiction. Through a mixture of readings, writing exercises and conversations, participants will find new ways of approaching their own store of images and experience, and of identifying and developing the literary potential inside it.
William Fiennes is the bestselling author of The Snow Geese and The Music Room, and winner of the Hawthornden Prize and the Somerset Maugham Award. He is co-founder of the charity First Story and Chair for this year's Folio Prize jury, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2009.
This Masterclass will be for a maximum of fourteen people and six places will be reserved for Fellows and Members of the RSL.
The class lasts three hours and costs £30 for Members and £60 for the public.
Tickets are distributed by ballot. Please email Swithun Cooper by Friday 17 October using 'William Fiennes Masterclass' as the subject line, to enter your name. Successful applicants will be contacted shortly after the closing date.
