Historical Fiction Workshop

In partnership with the Saskatchewan Festival of Words, join local author, David Richards, as he leads an informative session about writing historical fiction. The workshop will also include a guided tour of the WDM galleries for inspiration! This workshop will provide practical guidance, tips, and hopefully a bit of inspiration in writing historical fiction. We will discuss focused research, using history to find characters and plot, how to let the history into your fiction, editing the blend of fact and fiction and more. We will discuss the issues of revisionism and voice/culture appropriation. We will tour the WDM, physically touching history, then end with a writing exercise that you can submit for critique – or not, as you wish. Pre-registration is required: http://www.wdm.ca/mj/events/historicalfiction.htm Cost: $35 Refreshments For more information, please call 306-693-5989
