Using Nonfiction Writing Techniques to Write a Better Family History"
 
                  Live Webinar

8:30 p.m.
 
 
            VCPL Rooms A, B & C
             

 6:00 p.m. - Refreshments & Socializing

 As genealogists we often focus on facts and uncover so much information that our research produces nothing but boring lists. But do you really know what happened between the dashes of your ancestors' lives?  How can you share that information in a compelling and interesting way?  This session will discuss how to use nonfiction writing techniques to produce a "can't put down" family history that will keep the pages turning for generations.

Lisa A. Alzo is a freelance writer, instructor, and lecturer with over 20 years’ experience in the field of genealogy. She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Nonfiction Writing from the University of Pittsburgh. She is the author of nine books and frequent contributor of articles to Family Tree Magazine and other genealogy periodicals.
