The History Council of NSW is sponsoring four students to attend the Professional Historians Association NSW & ACT’s (PHA) ‘History Writing Workshop’ with award-winning author, Dr Mark Tredinnick. The workshop will take place at History House, 133 Macquarie St, Sydney, at 10am to 4pm, Saturday 23 July 2016. The HCNSW will cover the cost of each students’ ticket, valued at $75 per ticket (plus Eventbrite fees). This will be a great opportunity for students to learn tips in writing history as well as the chance to connect with professionals working in the field of history.

Dr Tredinnick talks and teaches widely on writing, landscape, justice and ecology. For over a decade he has run writing programs at the University of Sydney and at writers’ centres in Australia and the United States. He teaches grammar and composition, and he consults, on writing matters, with clients in business and government.
