19. Fictionalizing Famous Figures
Master storyteller Eva Stachniak shows you how to capture that famous historical figure (or your great- great- grandmother) by creating a voice that rings true. She’ll discuss how much to depend on archival evidence, where to look for relevant historical details to bring your character to life, and how not to get bogged down by research. Drawing from favourite historical fiction writers and her own writing experience, she shares tips and techniques for creating a fully-fleshed fictional version of an historical figure.
