Aperçu

The Saskatchewan Festival of Words and the Western Development Museum of Moose Jaw are partnering to host an historical fiction workshop!

History can be dull – but not if you bring it to life with fiction. This workshop will provide practical guidance, tips, and hopefully a bit of inspiration in writing historical fiction. We will discuss focussed research, using history to find characters and plot, how to let the history into your fiction, editing the blend of fact and fiction and more. We will discuss the issues of revisionism and voice/culture appropriation. We will tour the WDM, physically touching history, then end with a writing exercise that you can submit for critique – or not, as you wish.

Détails

Details:

The formal workshop instruction will be in three parts. We start with a look at how we define history for fictional writing: research tips, physical history, and the pitfalls of revisionism. Second we will discuss the techniques for blending history into our fiction: using your research to find characters and plot, letting the history in, allowing fiction to win over history. The third will focus on editing: setting your standards, discerning the proper blend of fact and fiction. The issue of Voice and Cultural Appropriation will be a thread of all three parts. The next phase will be a tour of the museum. Finally we will attempt a writing exercise based on the lecture and tour. You will be able to submit it for critique – or not, as you wish.
