In this new course, we focus our attention on turning the events of our ancestor’s life into scenes. Scenes are the hallmark of engaging stories. Without them, our stories are dry and lifeless. Through our six weeks together, we look at the difference between scene and summary. We cover the various elements required to write a scene including description, dialogue, and conflict. We learn to add layers of emotion and theme to our scenes. By the end, family history writers will have a full understanding of scene writing and will be on their way to practising and improving their scenes to write engaging family history stories. We keep these classes small so that we can critique each other’s work, get one on one help, and learn from each other.

    I thoroughly enjoyed completing this course in “Writing a Family History Scene” and would recommend it to all aspiring family history writers. It is inspiring when you can see yourself and your fellow students improve so much by the end of the course. Lynn’s teachings have given us the tools to carefully craft our stories for the enjoyment by our families. I have learnt so much.

    This course opened my eyes to scene structure. My writing improved immensely once I had the right tools and guidance to build a scene properly. This is my second Family History Writing Studio course and it will not be my last. Between Lynn’s excellent guidance and the input from the other students, it was in interactive learning experience I highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of writing a family history narrative. In order to any job properly, you need the right tools and, in my opinion, this is the place to build your toolbox.

    This was the first writing course I’ve ever taken and it was definitely worth the investment. I had started working on a family history book but was spinning my wheels because I didn’t really know the best way to tell the story. I learned that constructing a scene is imperative to writing a family history that will engage the reader without boring them with lists of names and dates. We can take cues from fiction writers to bring the stories of real people to life. Thanks Lynn for your hard work on this course and the personal feedback.
