Speaker Topics: Writing a Non Boring Family History

Every family has secrets. And the extraordinary ‘ordinary’ stories deserve to be told. Researching and finding the best way to tell these stories can be a fascinating journey and the chance to create a valuable resource for your descendants.

But how do you create an account that is memorable, engaging and not boring?

   

Hazel's Non-Boring Family History Workshop covers topics including

  • Researching and Interviewing Skills
  • How to organise your material
  • Structuring a Book 
  • Making it interesting for the reader
  • Formatting and Publishing Options
  • Handling Family Secrets
  • Editing and Proofreading
  • How to write using all senses and perspectives
  • Launching and Marketing possibilities

Suitable for all who wish to improve their writing skills as well as for those contemplating or struggling with a book length project such as a family history, corporate history or autobiography/memoirs. Also suitable for those writing family history stories and anecdotes for younger children in their families.

The workshop is based on Hazel’s book Writing a Non Boring Family History. also available as an e-book.

Can also be a 1 hour lunchtime talk.

The Public Records Office (Vic) offers Hazel's year long  'Complete Your Book in a Year' and in 2020, some Skype sessions may be available for interstaters. Cotact Hazel for details.
