Sepotember 29th Writing Workshop, Houston, Texas

Two weeks from today I will be in Houston, Texas as a guest of the Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research. I will be presenting a day-long writing workshop on Saturday, September 29th.

Writing Your Family History: An Interactive Day
10:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Lunch is on your own.

A Baker’s Dozen
10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Anyone can write! Learn ways to get your family history in print without a lot of strain!  A “Baker’s Dozen” of ways to get started and ideas to get your greater family involved will be shared.  You may find that you are already doing some of these but hadn’t realized you were actually getting family history into print!  We’ll cover focus points, themes, photos, incorporating general history, and editing.  Come prepared to write and take home a new outlook on getting YOUR family history written.

Writing Exercises
2:00  p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
The afternoon will consist of writing exercises, individually and in small groups.  Attendees are requested to bring a personal laptop if available.  There will also be some actual writing, so please bring lined paper and pens and pencils of different colors. 

This program is free and open to the public but seating is limited to 45 people.  You MUST call Clayton Library at 832-393-2600 to register. Click here for more event info at the Clayton Library.
