Online Class – Setting the Scene in Historical Fiction with Kim van Alkemede

February 26 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$50 – $250

Historical fiction aims to situate unique characters in compelling situations set in the past that will resonate with readers today. Though research is important, the building block that brings historical fiction to life is the scene. In this class, students will learn what goes into writing strong scenes in historical fiction, how to develop diverse characters, and how to integrate research without interrupting the flow of the scene. After viewing video lectures, reading example pieces, participating in discussions, and writing in response to prompts, students will workshop a fully developed scene and receive personal feedback from the instructor.
