Life-writing, with pictures.

In October, I took up a visiting scholarship at the Oxford Centre For Life Writing, based at Wolfson College, Oxford University. I’ve worked with them in the past and I know they are keen that as many people as possible access their research, so I will make sure anything I produce that’s related to this position is enjoyable and accessible as well as educational. It’s an unpaid, honorary position, but a huge privilege to be nominated to do this, plus I get access to all their amazing libraries and other resources. What is life-writing though? Doesn’t it just mean memoir?…
