Enrich Your Fiction with Research
with Amy L. Bernstein
Tuesday October 24, 2023 1:00pm US Central time • 2 hour online workshop
One-time Zoom webinar
Beginning and intermediate novelists of any genre
Great fiction isn’t only make-believe. Incorporating facts (history, science, medicine, archaeology, places, pop culture references, etc.) can enliven and deepen any genre, contribute to rich world-building, and establish trust between reader and author. Participants joining us live will have an opportunity to complete a worksheet for where, why, and how research fits into their story. Guided by that knowledge, we’ll explore conventional and unconventional sources online to help you uncover fresh material to enliven your settings. You’ll take away a deeper appreciation for how research can help you write a more interesting story in specific ways and strategies for blending fact and fiction without overwhelming your narrative. We’ll leave plenty of time for Q&A.
Everyone enrolled in this webinar will receive a copy of the recording afterwards, so you can review it later in case you missed it.
