Recreating the Past

with Emma Darwin

Duration: 1 hour

How do you root your fiction in history without getting stuck in the mud? How do you tell a compelling story when you have to look everything up? In this practical workshop we will explore the business of finding, imagining and writing stories set in the past. You should leave with a clearer sense of the riches and challenges of this exciting genre, and with some tools and strategies for making the most of them.
