In the course of your life, you have encountered various difficulties and found ways to survive. Are you inspired to write a short memoir about one such episode so as to honour the occasion and for others to read and treasure?
If you are uncertain on how to structure and write down your reflections in a manner that will engage your readers, then Triumphant is just the workshop for you.

Craft character, setting, scenes, dialogue, theme, flow and pace.
The course includes editorial feedback on work by the participants over the course of the workshops.
