A Creative Guide to Writing Your Family’s Stories

Date and Time: September 24, 2022, 10:00 AM CT

(view on google maps)

We all love discovering a fantastic tale of our family's past—whether it be the distant relative who journeyed on the Mayflower or the grandmother riveted airplanes at a World War II factory. But how do we share these stories in engaging ways? This workshop provides the tools to enrich genealogical research with story and memory so that readers will feel what it was like to be in that moment. Exercises include developing characters, describing places and events of importance, and finding the heart of a story with the goal of creating an irresistible read. Presented by Kim Stanley.
