27. Historical Research from Old Sources – WS *CANCELLED*

September 30, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Please note this event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. KWF will be in touch with all ticket holders. Thank you.

Although they can be challenging to find, accurate historical details from primary sources give your story or nonfiction piece credibility and contribute to your readers’ trust. Governor General’s Award winner, historian Karolyn Smardz-Frost, teaches you a methodology for how to locate and receive access to public records, archives, and personal collections that help you write accurately about traditions, customs, laws, demographics, and other details that will pinpoint a time and place for your character or subject and allow them to come alive again in your writing.
Limited enrolment 

9:00 – 11:30 am
