FROM SOURCES TO STORIES: A HISTORICAL FICTION WRITING WORKSHOP
Facilitated by Joem Antonio
12 May 2019 | 9 AM – 6 PM
Open to Adults 18 years old and above
Contrary to what many people know, the word “story” actually comes from the word “history.” Looking at the history of stories, one could see that many story conventions are derived from patterns observed in history. And yet, when one attempts to transform historical events to historical fiction, one discovers that history ignores or even defies story conventions.
In this Historical Fiction Writing Workshop, we will explore the preparation necessary in writing historical fiction, from finding story opportunities in different historical documents, to developing a story arc that fits within the historical context, to some basic techniques at executing the story arc into a zero draft narrative.
