Every Newfoundland community has their stories of tragic shipwrecks and of local people lost or rescued. The Shipwreck Preservation Society wants to encourage the collection of this nautical folklore before it is lost forever. Join folklorist Dale Jarvis to learn how to conduct and record interviews to collect shipwreck stories. Dennis Flynn will provide tips on making contact with local sources for shipwreck stories and share some of the better stories he has heard. On Sunday, you’ll also get to conduct and record a shipwreck interview, to apply what we’ve learned. Lunch will be supplied both days.

Saturday & Sunday, June 24 & 25, 2017 — 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Conception Harbour Fire Hall
Cpl Jamie Murphy Memorial Drive, Conception Harbour, NL

Free for SPSNL members and Conception Harbour residents. General public is $25. Pre-registration required. Limited to 15 participants. Deadline to register is June 21.
