I've started up a blog and revived the twitter feed (@OxLifeWriting) for OCLW. The blog is designed as an informal counterpart to the official OCLW website: a forum for discussion of themes and ideas relevant to life-writing; anecdotes and experiences; exchange of material in progress; information about forthcoming events; reviews of past events, books, articles, TV and radio etc; podcasts.
Please do have a look around and any feedback would be extremely welcome (I'm a blogging novice, so would love any suggestions!).
I've also set up a discussion board on Yahoo Groups for lengthier conversations about life-writing.
If you have an interest in life-writing, you may like to visit the webpages of OCLW's friends:
