Diane Taylor

Diane Taylor has had several careers as a medical lab tech, a teacher, a sailor and a writer. She   is the author of The Gift of Memoir and is well known as a workshop presenter and teacher of memoir writing. She started writing while sailing in the Caribbean because life on the ocean and in the islands was so fresh and immediate, she felt an urgent need to record it, to re-experience it in words. A book resulted: The Perfect Galley Book. Diane will give a workshop on writing a memoir of your own at the Spirit of the Hills Festival of the Arts on Saturday November 4th at St Peter’s Church in Cobourg.
