Finding voices from the past can bring your writing to life and allow you to rediscover lost people. In this friendly and practical class we will look at where to find those ‘voices’ and how to use them in your writing. We will explore sound archives and other collections and discuss how to conduct interviews. We will consider the ethics of oral history and look at how to weave voices into your writing – whether fiction or non-fiction.
