Session 4: Stretching Truths and Spinning Tales: Writing Speculative History

  • Gasworks Arts Park (map)

You stumble across a juicy scrap of history. You do your research, but there are still gaps and silences in the historical record. 

So you use your imagination…but how far are you allowed to go?

Author, teacher and podcaster, Kate Mildenhall, tells the story of how she wrote her debut novel, SKYLARKING, and explores the challenges, ethics and magic of writing fiction based on true stories and people. During this session, Kate will also discuss tips and resources for research along with pathways to publication for young writers. (Seats Available: 180)
