*Don't Neglect the Stories: Add Story-writing to Your Professional Services*
Saturday, March 3, 2012   2:00p.m. Eastern
Presented by Mary Penner

You've finished the client's research and written a concise, fact-based
report. Case closed, right? Not so fast. What about the stories you
uncovered? What about those tantalizing tidbits that point to colorful
characters and unusual events? Your clients may not ask for a written
story, but, often, that's what they really want from your diligent research
efforts. They want to embrace the stories that their ancestors neglected to
pass down to them. Join APG member Mary Penner as she offers tips on
developing a writer's instinct for story. She'll address the differences
between a genealogical narrative and a genealogical story, how to spot
story-worthy events and characters, how to research a story, how to write a
lively story, and how to earn additional income from story-writing.
