CFA Writing Workshop: Historical Fiction

- $22

Be Well Be Here happily collaborates with the Concord Festival of Authors 2021 to present

Writing Historical Fiction: To Muck and Fudge

Writing historical fiction requires specificity of time and place, often gathered from authorial research. But how does an author set aside scholarly inquiry to focus on fiction– character, conflict, voice, etc.? In other words, how do we get out of the books to get into our book? This workshop offers techniques for re-creating historical moments to suit contemporary narratives, and offers suggestions for avoiding historical fiction traps. Explore new ways to turn your story of time and place into a compelling and memorable work of fiction with celebrated author Allison Amend. Learn more about Allison’s fascination with historical fiction and her mindful writing process in her essay, Celebrating Those Whom History Has Forgotten. Discover her wise and witty approach to creating memorable narratives in this entertaining interview with the Los Angeles Review of Books.
