Telling Your Story

It's not everyday that the BDC can corral an up-and-coming author and a book publisher to present a free workshop for our Library customers.  Because the newspaper did not indicate the desirability of pre-registration, we will take all comers until the 2nd floor lobby is full of people willing to learn how to write true stories others will want to read.

Event Name:  “Write Your Story a Moment at a Time: A Memoir-Writing Workshop” featuring Library Archives
Description of event: Susan Kammeraad-Campbell, publisher of Joggling Board Press, has heard just about every pitch for a memoir or family history imaginable. She's developed a technique for guiding writers through the process of writing true stories others will actually want to read.  It worked for Teresa Bruce, co-presenter and author of The Other Mother: a Remoir -- who used the Byrne Miller papers archived in the Beaufort Country Library's Special Collections as both source and inspiration.
Time and date of event: Thursday, November 7th, 2013 from 2-3:30pm.                                         Location of event: Beaufort District Collection, 2nd floor, 311 Scott Street, Beaufort, SC 29902
Price:  Free
