The Knoxville Writers’ Guild (KWG) will host a research workshop titled, “Smart Research Tactics for Writers”. It will be held on Saturday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to noon at Central United Methodist Church. The church is located at 201 E. Third Ave. Accessible parking is available.


The workshop will be led by historical novelist, Pamela Schoenewaldt, and research librarian, Jamie Osborne, from the Knox County Public Library.


“Whatever your genre – fiction or non, journalism, memoir, poetry, or family history – this workshop will pay for itself many times over”, Osborne said. “We’ll show the wealth of material available through the Knox County Public Library, including the McClung Collection.”


Writers of any genre, any age, and any level of experience are welcome.
