Advanced Historical Fiction Workshop
Genres: Fiction, Novel
Start the new year off by delving deeper into your historical fiction manuscript and advancing your understanding of craft through writing sprints, research exercises, and class discussions. Each week, we'll read a variety of excerpts from a range of historical novels to examine different tricks of the trade and expand our vision for what's possible within our writing. Everyone will have an opportunity to share their work to receive constructive and thoughtful feedback on up to 10 pages of writing.
