April 20: WRITING HISTORICAL FICTION with Anne Barnhill
The class will learn vital aspects of writing historical fiction, including how to make historical figures 'come alive', how to use dialogue from another century, where to find research materials, and much more. We will be doing writing exercises geared to historical fiction, as well as taking a brief look at some historical novels to see how other writers work. Barnhill is the award-winning author of numerous books, including At the Mercy of the Queen; Coal Baby; and What You Long For. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from UNC-Wilmington, and teaches workshops throughout the state.
Meets Saturday, 10-4 pm. $75/$70 members.
