Indulge your love of words with a course at Sydney School of Arts & Humanities. 

Memoir & Creative Journal

Celebrate in words a special period in your life


Each of us has an original view of the world and a period we want to record for posterity.


Share in a session focused on producing your own personal journal or a memoir narrative celebrating your very own take on life.

Capture a memory or create a journal of travel, parenting, as a garden diary, or for other family events – your unique record of a time to remember.

We explore ideas about:

  • Developing an ‘observer’ role

  • Prompting memory & presenting text in an engaging form

  • Understanding copyright, intellectual property and plagiarism

  • Blogging – the fun, the fortune and the fame.

Come and enjoy extracts from the journals & memoirs of literary figures and popular celebrities. Keeping a journal is for you alone!

When: TBA – Watch for new dates later in the year.

Sundays with Leonard

Honouring  the lyrics of Leonard Cohen

Singer and songwriter Leonard Cohen (b. Sep 21, 1934, Westmount, Canada – d. Nov 10, 2016, Los Angeles).


He entranced audiences around the globe, with thousands attending his performances in Australia in the years leading up to his death in late 2016.

In 2009, while performing in eastern Spain, he collapsed on stage with food poisoning while singing his legendary Bird on a Wire. Still he would continue to perform – a consummate performer and a real trouper. Three days later, on his 75th birthday, he performed in Barcelona, declaring: ‘May your lives be sweet as apples dipped in honey’.

Learn more about Leonard Cohen and share your understanding of Hallelujah, Anthem, A Thousand Kisses Deep and other songs.
