NT Archives for Writers
Looking to add detail and colour to your historical writing? Injecting some historical authenticity into a work of fiction? Interested in writing a family history, but don’t know where to start?
In a lunchtime session, Lis Marnie, Archives Services Officer, will introduce writers to the NT Archives Service collection. There will be an opportunity to look at some archival records, and discuss the collection and basic research methods.
What information is available, and how can writers access these resources to inform and develop their work? The NT Archives Service preserves and manages government and community records including oral histories. The NTAS has offices in Alice Springs and Darwin, and has records relevant to nearly every location on the Territory map.
Feel free to bring a simple lunch and an enquiring mind.
Lis Marnie works for the NT Archives Service in Alice Springs. She has lived in Alice Springs for over twenty years and has a background in libraries, research, digital archives, sound theory and radio production. Lis presents the NT Archives fortnightly radio segment, ‘Every Picture Tells A Story’, on Local ABC radio.
