A free family history writing taster session will run next month at Woodhorn, near Ashington, Northumberland on July 28.
If you are researching your family history and have a pile of fascinating facts but don’t know how to start putting them together then this workshop called Past Perfect will be perfect for you. It’s ideal for people who want to make their family history content more readable.
Award-winning writer Dr. Barbara Henderson will illustrate the process of using creative writing in non-fiction. She will give valuable insights into how to structure the your family history, which details to include or leave out and whether, where and how to share or even publish the results. Even if would you simply like to record your family history for your children, grandchildren and generations to come, this session will provide useful hints and tips and inspire you to get writing.
Exhibitions & Events Officer Liz Ritson says “We are delighted to be working with Barbara on this event. Lots of people have discovered fascinating stories about their own families through using the Northumberland Archive service at Woodhorn, and this is a great way for them to share those stories with others.”
The Past Perfect taster session is at Woodhorn on Saturday 28th July from 2pm-3.30pm.
This session is free, but places are limited and booking is essential. To book a place, please call Woodhorn on 01670 528 080.
