What happens when we deliberately blur the boundaries between fiction and fact? In this creative writing workshop, we will explore how to use historical facts as a starting point for speculative writing. To begin, we’ll gather some facts from our surroundings in St Mary’s Parish Church and then, using a series of writing prompts and exercises, we will consider how to blend facts into our fictions. You may not write your entire, best-selling historical novel in this session, but you’ll come away armed with some useful tools and tips for blending fiction and facts.
Designed for participants aged 14+, suitable for beginners and experienced writers
Do I need to bring anything?
No writing experience necessary, just bring a notebook and your writing tool of choice – perhaps the pen is mightier than the trowel?
