WORKSHOP DETAILS - HOW TO WRITE TRUE STORY:
We all love a good true story. Whether it’s the biography of a famous movie star or politician, a dramatic true crime, an incredible rescue story or an absorbing tale from the past, the truth is enthralling—but writing it can be tricky business. This workshop will teach you how to research, structure, plot and write a book in the narrative nonfiction genre. Learn the techniques nonfiction authors use to turn real events into compelling plot, real people into authentic ‘characters’ and to blend information and scene into engaging prose, all without distorting the facts or crossing the boundaries of nonfiction.
REQUIREMENTS: Participants will need to bring pen and paper (or laptop) for note taking.
