Rogue Valley Genealogical Society  (Local society meetings)
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Virtual
The program at the Rogue Valley Genealogical Society (Medford, OR) meeting is “A Dark and Stormy Genealogy No Longer: Becoming a Great Storyteller.”  Although we’d all like to write the next great American family history, few of us find it easy.  The key is in learning a few tips from fiction and a few more from creative non-fiction—when to use them and when not to, to make the story of your family come to life and keep the reader engaged from beginning to end.  If discussing point of view leaves you queasy, and determining plot points leaves you puzzled, here’s a roadmap from rambling to readable.  Research is the root of good storytelling, so you already have the building blocks for great stories.  A few quick and simple tips will get you churning out chapters your relatives will read.
 
To register for this presentation, go to www.rvgslibrary.org and select “class registration” from the Programs & Classes drop-down menu.  Once you’ve completed your registration and payment, you will receive an email the evening before with your Zoom link and any class handouts.  Cost:  $10 for members, $20 for non-members.  Registration closes at noon January 25th Pacific Time.  Please direct any questions to registration@rvgslibrary.org
