Coburn Academy: Love learning? Learn local.
January 24 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Joanna’s presentation is called Fact and Fiction: Writing the Historical Novel
She will cover areas such as:
Where do ideas for historical novels come from?
Researching your idea
Incorporating research–What is too much? What is not enough?
Transcending research with imaginative leaps
Creatively using “found objects”
Letting emotion be the guide to scene-writing
Language and the historical novel
Writing as rewriting–how the writing process can help
She will also read us an excerpt of her newest novel In the Fall They Leave.
It’s our pleasure to bring the community together to learn, grow, and reconnect.
If you’re interested in attending but want more information, give us a call. If you have an area of expertise that might interest the group and would like to present please call the desk and ask for Corinne Moshier or Meredith Gallaro. They’ll be our on site coordinators for the rebooted program!
