Helping Writers to Rise and Thrive

Writing Historical Fiction

Wednesdays, August 2, 9, 23, 30. (No class on August 16). 1-3:30 p.m. Live on Zoom
Heather Webb
Four weeks, $285. Limited to 7 students.

Join the exciting world of writing historical fiction and conquer the genre’s craft. Analyze bestselling authors, learn how to gather and integrate research, expand worldbuilding skills and create your own practical toolbox of craft techniques to breathe life into your historical stories.

Learn tools of the trade, spend your “off week” getting feedback on some pages, then jump back in again.

You will learn from a master of the craft, author Heather Webb. Heather is the USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of nine historical novels, including “Strangers in the Night,” “The Next Ship Home,” and the up and coming “Queens of London,” about an all-female gang in 1925 London led by the notorious Diamond Annie and the Forty Elephants. Heather’s “Rodin’s Lover” was a Goodread’s Top Pick, and “Last Christmas in Paris” won the Women’s Fiction Writers Association STAR Award. Heather’s books have been translated into 17 languages.

Her essay Leveling Up: How to Harness Revision to Make the Good Even Better was published by Writer’s Digest in the craft collection Author in Progress.

For your convenience, this workshop takes place live on Zoom.
