What is the Write Stuff Genealogy Intensive?
The Write Stuff: Build Your Family History Writing Skills experience consists of an online self-paced instruction. You can start and complete the course whenever it is most convenient for your schedule. You will be guided through practical assignments with videos and resources for each topic and have access to a private Facebook group where you can interact with your writing coach and fellow family history writers and receive feedback.
This results-driven course will take you through the basics of jumpstarting your writing project through goal-setting, finding your focus, creating a storyboard and working on writing profiles and longer narratives.
Would You Like Success Like THIS?
Since 2014, The Write Stuff intensives have helped and inspired family historians to write, publish, and share their stories. For example, Melissa R. published a family booklet after taking the course, and had a genealogical organization ask to reprint her work. Another student, Steve C. had the story he drafted during The Write Stuff included in the RootsTech 2018 Photo+Story contest.
After taking The Write Stuff, Kathy N. was empowered to publish a family history book and says “Your gentle guidance and a supportive group helped me see that I am indeed a writer!”

What Family Historians Are Saying About The Write Stuff
Since 2014, The Write Stuff intensives have helped and inspired family historians to write, publish, and share their stories. Several participants have even seen success with self-publishing or with having their works featured in society newsletters and family history displays.
“Those who take The Write Stuff series will gain skills in writing their family history from the idea to completion. Lessons and assignments are in manageable segments; feedback is supportive. I completed a family booklet and, unexpectedly, a genealogical organization asked to reprint my work, thanks to the tools and guidance provided by the course.” – Melissa R.
“Lisa Alzo’s Write Stuff Genealogy Intensive introduced me to tools I had not used before which helped in every aspect of my writing projects. One of the projects I wrote during the course received the best response thus far from my blog readers and an excerpt of the story was selected to be displayed at RootsTech 2018 as part of the CONNECT-BELONG-FAMILY-HERITAGE Photo+Story Competition. In addition to improving my genealogy blogging, I found my writing to be more clearly focused and better structured. I would highly recommend Lisa’s courses for anyone looking to go beyond just dates and facts to tell the stories of their ancestors.” – Steve C.
“The Write Stuff Genealogy Intensive” has boosted my confidence as a writer. Before I joined the “Intensive”, I was really stuck on a project I’d been working on for over two years. I couldn’t decide on the best format to use or how to cite my many, many sources properly. Through the “Intensive” I gained new skills and developed new habits which helped me break through my writer’s block. The weekly lessons kept me focused and motivated to keep working. Lisa was so helpful and responsive to my many questions. Being part of a community of fellow writers was a great experience!” – Deb H.
“Your Write Stuff Seminar empowered me to write my family history. Your gentle guidance and a supportive group helped me see that I am indeed a writer! I appreciated the weekly meetings, the prompts, and the opportunity to share my work with others. And I loved exploring the variety of forms one’s family history might take. You inspired me to express myself and in so doing leave a family legacy. Thank you Lisa.” – Kathy N.
