WRITING LOCAL HISTORY WORKSHOP

August 20 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

We are thrilled that Dr Rosalie Triolo will be once again offering her Writing Local History workshops to RHSV members and friends.  A gentle warning – these workshops inevitably book out. For our interstate members please note that Rosalie will be offering Zoom workshops later in 2022 and throughout 2023 across all states and territories through the auspices of the Federation of Australian Historical Societies.
