Genealogy Sunshine Coast Workshops


Share your stories

Saturday 30 July 2016

9.30- 3.30pm 
An inspiring workshop with  Bronwyn Cozens 


DECORATING THE FAMILY TREE

 Writing short stories

Humans are innate storytellers; it is how we connect with our tribe, and how we  introduce ourselves to other tribes. 
The stories we hear give us a glimpse into other  worlds and other ways. 
And the stories we tell allow us to be our best selves, and to  touch others. 

In this full­day workshop, you will explore techniques of creating memorable short  stories from your family history research. Whether you want to write short stories to  create a collection for the family, or to submit to magazines and competitions, or just  for fun, you will find much to guide, inspire and challenge you.

 In preparation, please read three or four well­ written short fiction stories – focus on  the way the story is told, think about who is the voice telling this story, consider why you enjoy or dislike each story. 

And on the day, bring the usual tools for my workshops – pens, lots of paper and/or  laptop, a willingness to participate, and your sense of humour. 

Be prepared to write,  to listen, to share ideas, and to laugh out loud! 


Cost for GSC Members is $ 25.00 per workshop ( includes morning tea)    -        Bookings preferred.

Lunch will be available for purchase - a menu will be provided with bookings

Non-members $30.00 per workshop
