World War 1 Project Writers' Workshop

Around twenty members of our World War 1 Project Writers' Group gathered at the Society rooms for a workshop with Cassie Mercer the Editor of Inside History Magazine last Saturday.

Cassie delivered a general talk about writing for magazines and newspapers then, after a break for a cuppa and a chat, gave us tips for writing up the biographies for the men and women from the Ku-ring-gai area who served in the conflict. It was pleasing to get feedback from Cassie on the work samples that writers had submitted to her before the talk. Cassie commended our writers on the research that had been done and the quality of the biographies submitted. Those who were present went away inspired to continue with their writing tasks.

Thank you, Cassie, for taking time out of your busy schedule and for the door prizes. Your passion and enthusiasm for family history and writing are infectious.

If you would like to join our group of researchers and writers for this project please contact Kathie Rieth,

Following are a few happy snaps from the event.
