We invite you to join us for the FxGS Family History Writing SIG online Zoom meeting on Monday night May 3rd from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
We are currently looking for manuscripts for the May 3 meeting. If you have a manuscript you are writing for your family or publication, members of the Family History Writers’ Special Interest Group would enjoy reading and reviewing your family narratives to help you to make them even better.
We are all at different levels of writing skills and experience, and we enjoy helping each other. Whether questions of grammar, comma usage, spelling variations or those fiendish footnotes, we welcome the opportunity to discuss and debate the issues.
If you wish to be added to the members list to receive a copy of the draft manuscript by email and join the online meetings, please send your name and email address to SIG co-leader Sean Furniss at Sean.Furniss@gmail.com.
Join us at the online Zoom meeting and see how historical context can be incorporated in family history narratives. See how two stories can be told at once, placing the protagonist in the center of the action, adding suspense, injecting drama, and using dialogue to move the story forward.
