Balancing Reality and Fiction

from 279.00

This workshop is designed for writers who are working on stories based on historical fact or personal/family history. We often get excited about turning a nugget from reality into a fictional project, but it can be daunting to balance research with the creative act of composing scenes and dialogue. What should that balance look like? How can a writer sound credible but creative? Which facts should stay, and which should go? We'll look at examples from other writers, establish our own goals (as everyone's will look different depending on the project), and workshop drafts with these personal goals in mind.
