Workshop: Wriitng Historical Fiction led by Deno Trakas
Writing Historical Fiction
Instructor: Deno Trakas (novelist and 5-time winner of the SC Fiction Prize)
10:0011:00 am on Monday, May 22
Pat Conroy Literary Center, 308 Charles Street, Beaufort, SC
Limited to 8 participants
Fee: $25

Historical fiction is, as its name suggests, a huge, hybrid genre. From Out of the Dust to Outlander, from a small story for young adults to a fabulously successful adult series that spans several centuries, historical fiction encompasses almost all of time and all of storytelling. Since the genre is so vast, a writer who's considering it might want to explore its parameters and possibilities. Award-winning fiction writer Deno Trakas will offer insights and guidance to help participants find the story that they can tell successfully. The workshop will also discuss the merging of fact and fiction and the techniques that can bring them both to life in a way that appeals to readers. Join us to talk, to listen, and/or to share some of your work. (The amount you may share depends on the number of participants.) Open to all levels of experience.

Advance registration required. Workshop registration fees are non-refundable, but if you must cancel, the fee can be applied toward a future Conroy Center class or event.
