Talk to Print - a step-by-step guide to publishing oral history

Talk to Print is a guide designed to help Aboriginal people and Aboriginal organisations carry out and publish their own community-based oral history projects.

It fulfils part of a NSW government election commitment for the 'mapping of oral histories to allow local Aboriginal communities to tell and record their own stories of ancestral connection to the land'.

The main focus of the guide is to explain how to turn recorded interviews into a community publication. Experienced OEH cultural heritage staff give step-by-step instructions and hints for every step in the process of publishing oral histories.
