Turning Research into Writing
(workshop by Trisha Fielding)
Research is key to writing a well-told story with depth and detail. Learn how to make the most of the resources available to you through libraries, archives and collections during the research phase of your project.
Whether you’re writing about local history, becoming biographer of a great life story or creating a fictional story with a historical setting, solid research will be a positive addition.To book your place, go directly to the Queensland Writers Centre webpage: http://www.qwc.asn.au/events/craft/fielding-research-aug/
