with Barbara Josselsohn


There’s a story you want to tell – a story from your family’s past, maybe, or a story about a place and time from long ago that intrigues you. But where do you start? How do know what to include, how can you create a strong sense of place and time, and what characteristics bring a past era to life? Where do you begin your research and how to do you weave the facts into your story? Through prompts, published examples, and class input, you’ll develop strong beginning chapters and a plan for your historical novel. Open to all writers who are ready to tell the story of past through their own lens.
