The Facts of Fiction

Dates: 2/10/2018–3/31/2018
Location: Bethesda
Level: All Levels
Genre(s): Fiction

Workshop Leader: Robert Friedman
This workshop is for writers who want to use real-life characters and/or true events in their fiction. Each writer will come to class with the noted character or event they would like to novelize, and explore the nexus between journalism and novel-writing. This workshop will discuss how journalistic principles may apply as the writer researches a factual article about the character and event, then creates a fictional piece, putting the character or event in a central role, while, hopefully, intuiting a fictional "truth" as filtered through the writer's research and imagination. After the first session, the workshop will be heavy on writing and critiquing.
