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.

Free, very limited places. To book, please email [email protected]
