Writer/teacher Lee Kofman discusses her new book The Writer Laid Bare: Mastering emotional honesty in a writer’s art, craft & life

About this event

Lee Kofman joins us at The Chestnut Tree to share her insights into writing and discuss her new book The Writer Laid Bare: Mastering emotional honesty in a writer’s art, craft & life.

The Writer Laid Bare is a book for everyone who loves the craft of good writing. Be they a voracious reader wanting to know more or an emerging writer themselves, author and writing coach Lee Kofman has distilled her wisdom, insight and passion into this guide to writing and emotional honesty.

A combination of raw memoir and a professional writing toolkit, Lee examines her own life, rich in story and emotion to reveal how committing to a truthful writing practice helped her conquer writer’s block and develop her own authentic voice.

‘Show don’t tell’ has never been so compelling.

Inspired by her popular writing courses, Lee also offers practical advice on drafts, edits and how to achieve a life/writing balance. How combining her writing with motherhood led her to recognise that ‘the pram in the hall’ issue is real.

Plus the ultimate reading list of books you really should read, from Chekhov to Elena Ferrante and Helen Garner.

Wine and nibbles included :)
