Writing workshop - June 3rd

How many times has someone said to you, “You should write a book about your family”? We have help on hand to get you started bringing the stories of your ancestors to life on Monday 3rd June.

Starting at 9 am in the Heritage Centre, Jim Parsons will be conducting a full day Creative Writing workshop exclusively for the Cooroy Noosa Genealogical & Historical Research Group.

Jim Parsons is a self-published author and a well-recognised tutor. He spent 12 years as a Head Teacher in the NSW TAFE system, has authored 3 novels, and has operated an online writing course for 12 years. Perhaps you want to write an autobiography. Jim will guide you through how to illuminate your story line with historical events, as well as the secrets, the triumphs and tragedies in your family history.

Places are limited and bookings are essential. Please fill in this form if you have not already registered for the workshop. Bring your favourite writing tools and any works in progress for the practical writing exercises.
