Dr Naomi Parry lectures in the Diploma of Family History at the University of Tasmania and is a professional historian, heritage consultant, and writer and editor. Dr Parry has crafted a wide range of narratives, including books, academic articles, theses and reports. As a digital historian she has worked on the Find & Connect web resource and the Dictionary of Sydney. She has also been a researcher and talking head on Who Do You Think You Are? Her first book was New South Wales and the Great War, the official NSW Centenary of Anzac publication. As the editorial coordinator of that project she can't decide whether the process of writing a book by committee made her or broke her.

Dr Parry talks about how to get authors thinking about composition, tone and structure, and how to raise ideas and issues in a way that develops trust.
