This class will explore how writers of fiction and nonfiction capture vibrant history on the page. Through prompts, examples, and discussion,
participants will discover methods for writing effective dialogue without “historical-ese,” learn tips for connecting characters from the past
with present-day readers, craft era-appropriate scenes, and explore innovative research methods.
