Senior Scholars @ Forest Library: “Writing Your Family Stories” with John Guzlowski
Apr 28 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Writing Your Family Stories”

John Guzlowski

We are all storytellers, whether we realize it or not.  Stories can be triggered by thoughts, images, and circumstances.

Your story will differ from the stories of others, even your spouse, siblings, and those living in the same household.  Each person will have his or her own response to a situation or circumstance.  Unlocking the secrets is the key to success.

Here’s an attempt at starting out with an overview:

  • First, organize your material.
  • Then divide your writing tasks into small manageable pieces.
  • Determine where your family fits in with local, national, and world history.
  • Blend historical fact with family stories.
  • Select the best details.
  • Use examples and practice writing exercises.

The Number One aim here is obvious–Recruit speakers from the audience for this coming fall, beginning the 1st and 3rd Fridays in September!  I’ll bet you didn’t know that you are involved, but you are!
