Turning dry facts into exciting narrative - Carol Baxter
The literary world condemns most family histories as 'fact-driven and tedious' because they are usually little more than prose timelines.  yet the phrase 'family history' communicates the three ingredients needed to produce a piece of prose that is interested to read: 'family' (the facts about the family), 'history' (the historical context) and 'story'.  This seminar focuses on the first two ingredients and shows how we can weave our facts together in such a way that the reader is keen to keep on reading.
