Writing Historical Fiction -Creative writing workshop with Lia Mills
All novels play with time but historical novels do it differently. History can help you write your story – or it can get in the way. In this session we’ll talk about how to go back in time to find a story that matters now. What’s the best way to tell it? We’ll talk about what brings a story to life in a reader’s mind and how to do the extra research a historical novel needs to make it credible. Which matters more, fact or fiction? How far can you go in one direction or the other?
Lia Mills’s most recent novel is Fallen, set in Dublin during the early years of the Great War and Easter Week, 1916. She has written two other novels, Another Alice and Nothing Simple, and a memoir, In Your Face.
