Cityread History Creative Writing Workshop
Tue 11 April 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
The past is full of fascinating stories and history can be a rich source of inspiration for your writing - but how do you create a different era on the page? Is it all Kings and courtiers? What can you discover about the lives of whose who lived more humble lives and hear the lost voices of history? How do you manage the research? Do you have to spend years in a library or are there other, more valuable ways to get an insight into the lives of our ancestors?
This workshop gives you the chance to experiment with historical fiction, discuss the problems and pleasures of the genre and find the key to unlocking the stories of our past.
