Steven Richards-Price
is a heritage interpreter with many years of practical experience working for natural resources agencies in Wales, UK. In his part-time role with Natural Resources Wales as Visitor Experience Specialist Advisor, he connects people with state-owned forests and national nature reserves. He has been an Interpret Europe Supervisory Committee Member and Training Team member/Trainer, former  Chair of the UK Association for Heritage Interpretation (AHI) and Vice-Chair of Interpret Wales. He has been running this course for the past three years, with excellent feedback from participants.

The key to effective word-based Heritage Interpretation is written text that grabs and holds the reader’s attention. During a 3-day online course participants will discover and practice a wide range of techniques to engage visitors and master the techniques of interpretive writing. Participants will strive to become a HERITΛGE accredited Interpretive Writer, after successfully completing, and being assessed on, the exercises. In addition to the tasks above, participants will take part in a range of other exciting activities.
