Writer's Workshop Meets 22 June

The next meeting of the Family History Writer's Workshop is on Tuesday, 22 June at 6 pm at the Largo Public Library).

Any of you who have thought about formalizing your thoughts, memories, and research findings into a memoir, journal, book, or just the back of an envelope should consider attending this event. The workshop gives you a supportive environment in which to nurture your writing.

There is no attempt to make anyone a professional writer. This is simply a group of people with the common objective of wanting to capture parts of their family history in writing. Whether you are writing for publication, your family, or just yourself, participating will be of benefit.

The session is, as the name states, a WORKSHOP. That means that everyone participates, and actual writing is done during the event. It is not a passive class where you sit and listen to someone talk about writing...you actually do some writing...you learn by doing. Don't let this scare you off, however. The workshop is fun and the people are supportive, and you leave with a product that can contribute to your family history.
