Writer’s Workshop Group 2023

This writing group will work together to improve a piece of your own writing over 11 months (we will take December off). The meeting times will be on usually the third Thursday of the month (though some dates may change due to schedule conflicts so pay attention to the schedule).

Our overall focus will be genealogical writing. We will be mostly focusing on writing aspects but will also touch on genealogical issues such as meeting the Genealogical Proof Standard (GPS), looking at Genealogical Standards that are relevant to writing, and using citations. (If you want more education on citations specifically, you should sign up for our Mastering Genealogical Documentation study group.)
