Let me bring my professional skills to your particular project. I can help you engage with the past and tell your story in way which best suits your desired end product, timing and budget.
Researching and presenting your history may be a new experience. There are many aspects to consider, so feel free to contact me to discuss these, be it choosing the best format, the length of the work, setting a budget, how you can contribute to the final product, and so on.
As a member of the Professional Historians Association (Queensland), I refer to the excellent resources on the PHA Website.
Some decisions to be made when commissioning history work are:
What is the best way to tell your story and what format/s best suit? These may range from the fully-researched, written, designed and printed book (whether “coffee table” or scholarly), to more modest publications such as history tours or leaflets, or information which feeds into a documentary, display, celebratory event, or website.
The time needed to produce the end product determines the professional fee; there may also be travel costs depending on the location of repositories, interviewees etc. Outlays range from research costs such as land titles, to scanning and purchasing images; and of course there will be design and printing costs for books, brochures and other published items. Other professional costs may include editing, proof reading and indexing.
