Lit Fest - Writing Compelling Historical Fiction with Susan Rivers

Setting a story or novel in the distant past commits a writer to serious research, but more is required than merely replicating fashions and customs.  If historical fiction is to be engaging it must create a world for the reader that is compelling and immediate: what happened long ago must read as if it is happening right now.  In this workshop, Rivers will share her methods for crafting such a world and will guide writers through exercises that will introduce them to this process.
