Historical Fiction/Creative Writing
During the morning session, writers will explore the very meaning of historical fiction, how to begin, what research is essential, and what can wait. We will also explore character development and realistic voices for specific decades and eras. Each writer will develop goals and a timeline and will begin work on their historical story. This element of the workshop will have a lasting impact, as what characters have been through informs their narrative and provides fascinating dialogue, engrossing tone, and atmosphere so specific it will carry your readers on a journey they’ll never want to end. For the rest of the day, writers will focus on seeing their stories through to completion using Writopia games and writing prompts.
