This special two-part writing workshop will give attendees some tried and true techniques to bring their family history to life and create a fascinating story anyone would want to read. Our instructor, Rondie Yancey, will help you flex your writing muscles to create something of lasting value for you and your family.

If you are one of those people who got scared to death by their high school English teachers—FEAR NOT!! We will prove to you that You CAN write and share the family story you have been researching all these years. If you can talk, you can write an interesting and informative story your family will love to read. So...

Part One, "Getting Started," will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016. You will leave this workshop with a good start to your story. You will come to Part Two, "Polish Up," on Saturday, May 28, 2016, with a draft of your finished story and will receive editorial feedback to help you polish it into a finished product.

Workshop participants may find the Microsoft Word Workshop, scheduled for Saturday, April 30, 2016, particularly useful in preparation for Part Two, "Polish Up." See our blog post Registration now open for Microsoft Word Workshop for details.
