Historical Fiction: What, How, Why and When? (Online)
Thursday, 30 September, 2021 | 19:00 - 20:00
Crime Cymru writers Alis Hawkins and Katherine Stansfield write historical fiction which covers a wide range of time periods, from the medieval to the early twentieth century, including a shared passion for rural communities in the mid nineteenth century.
In this online event, the pair will explore what historical fiction is (and isn’t!), the research methods each uses and how they craft their discoveries into gripping stories, the challenges and opportunities of writing fiction set in the past, and the murderous world of historical crime fiction.
The session will last approx. 40 minutes with time afterwards for an audience Q and A.
The event will be delivered in English.
