E-Course in Writing Your Family History

From genealogist Gill Blanchard, details of a new course that she will be running in the coming month:

E-Course in Writing Your Family History

This is a practical writing course that guides participants through the process of bringing their ancestors to life in an entertaining manner. It will enable students to choose the most suitable format, decide what to include (and exclude) and how to find and integrate relevant background context.

The course consists of two ten week modules, although module one can be taken as a stand alone unit. Lessons are delivered electronically. Students receive individually tailored in-depth feedback; have regular live discussions with the tutor and each other and access to an online learning hub.

Module One starts 25 September 2016. 10 Weeks. £125
Introducing your Project
Using Archival Resources - context
Bringing it to Life
Time and Place
Finishing Off - the end?

Module Two starts 29 January 2017. 10 Weeks. £125
This module develops the themes introduced in Module One. Students will focus on developing a specific writing project. The emphasis will be on writing and critique, both with the tutor and through peer to peer sessions.

* 10% discount for both modules booked together £225 *
