Family history and the art of story
A workshop with Arnold Zable
Join acclaimed Australian author Arnold Zable in a workshop exploring family history
and the art of story. Stories drawn from life, tales of journeys and family history, can be written in many ways, ranging from memoir to autobiography, from short story to novel, from personal journal to biography or tales simply written just for family. Whether fiction or non-fiction, they share in common the craft of story and tech-niques that can be applied to all genres. First comes the research, but the more crucial question is, what is the best way to make use of it, and how to write the story that brings history to life, and holds the reader. The workshop will include writing exercises, and will explore the most imaginative and engaging ways to write the sto-ries you have always wanted to write.
