Description

This event is part of the 11th Annual Booklovers Festival

History isn’t just about facts and figures: it’s about people and the choices they make. Capturing an authentic and compelling narrative voice is one of the fundamentals of all good fiction. Learn from Skylarking author Kate Mildenhall, who will lead you through writing exercises and explore topics such as research, history accuracy vs authenticity, and finding your historical voice.
