Waltham Public Library Historical Fiction Writing Workshop
Historical Fiction Writing Workshop
Wed, 05/15/2019 - 6:30pm

Are you an aspiring writer interested in writing historical fiction? Are you intimidated by the thought of jumping into another time period? This writing workshop is for you. Local author Jennifer S. Brown, whose book Modern Girls delves into the history of both reproductive rights and immigration will talk about where to find ideas, how to start the research, and how to incorporate the research into your writing. The workshop will cover the basics of historical fiction so you can begin to write with confidence. Bring writing materials, and if time permits, we'll do an in-class writing exercise. This is a Waltham Library sponsored event. For more information, please email D. Hoffman or call 781-314-3441. To view or download the flyer, click here.
