      Okay folks. There are still available for places at the workshop this Saturday at Footscray.

      Are you writing your family history or wondering how to start the process. This will be a perfect opportunity for you to hear the world known writer Arnold Zable and to get direct feedback from him regarding your project.

      The details are in the attached pamphlet. The cost is a very reasonable. Only $35 for a full day workshop including lunch. Please email me ASAP to ensure that that spot is available for you.

      Writing your family history will ensure that that the story that you are building from your research is told and passed on to others.

      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.

        Hi Lucyna,

        A big thank you to you, Helena, Anja and the rest of the committee for making Arnold Zable writing workshop happen.

        He was indeed a fantastic teacher for anyone writing their family story and what a wonderful person  -  I am so pleased that I managed to attend.  I now know what writing "texture" is about and why I am doing it  -  what a great way to kick start anyone thinking of writing and everyone there had an important story  to tell.  I hope one day I will get an  opportunity to read them all.

         

        Congratulations

         

        Steve
