Writing Historical Fiction with Judith Starkston

Arizona, Arizona, United States of America

  • About Conference

    Writing historical fiction requires an additional set of skills along with the essential tools of all fiction writers. This course will drill down into the specific artistry of historical fiction and its subgenres (such as historical fantasy, historical mystery, time-slip). A good writing class helps students integrate new skills into their own practice. We will reach that goal both by dissecting models (outstanding and problematic) and by generating/reworking passages of students’ manuscripts. Topics will include: balancing accuracy and storytelling, building historical worlds with powerful emotional effect, using primary documents for rich scenes, developing immersive setting without overburdening the story, creating engagement and believability with historical details, and composing convincing dialogue from the past.
