Whether you’ve inherited boxes of artifacts or only a few stories passed down to you, this multi-genre workshop will help you begin to shape the materials of family history into an artful essay, poem, story, or segment of a larger work. Specific topics include selecting significant details, fleshing out characters, providing historical or cultural context, and choosing the best structure. Participants should bring at least one photo, object, letter, postcard, document, or brief draft related to family history.
