"Crafting 'Then' Into 'Now:' Writing Compelling Historical Fiction"

Setting a story or novel in the distant past commits a writer to serious research, but more is required than merely replicating fashions and customs.  If historical fiction is to be engaging it must create a world for the reader that is compelling and immediate: what happened long ago must read as if it is happening right now.  In this one-hour workshop, Rivers will share her methods for crafting such a world and will provide writers with exercises to aid them in this process.

Sunday workshops are being held in the Michael Brown Center on Evins Street, on the Wofford Campus: https://www.wofford.edu/newsroom/2012/Michael-S-Brown-Village-Center-receives-LEED-Silver/
