Welcome to the Writing Workshop!

An oral history is a piece of writing that tells about someone's life using that person's words. There are millions of people alive today who were soldiers, workers, or students during the Second World War. What was it like to be a soldier who fought the battles? Or a student on her way to school while the war was going on? Interview someone who remembers the war, then write and publish that person's oral history.
