Writing Historical Fiction: A KYD Writers’ Workshop
Join KYD publishing director and bestselling author Hannah Kent in this unique online writing course.
Whether you have an idea for a novel based on true events or you wish to create a work of fiction set in the past, writing historical fiction requires a research process and deep consideration of character, narrative and prose to ensure that the work feels alive and relevant to a modern reader.
Through a series of writing exercises and insights into the creative practice of developing a work of historical fiction, this workshop will teach you where to find research materials, what to look for in historical records, and will review the components that make up a manuscript (such as character, plot, dialogue, place and structure) within the context of the genre.
The course is designed to take you 6-8 hours to complete, but can be accomplished in short stages, or at your convenience.
