CREATIVE NON-FICTION WORKSHOP presented by Di Websdale-Morrissey
Creative Non-Fiction can be a confusing concept – many think of it as a licence to embroider the truth so heavily with fiction that the facts are lost in the process. Creative non-fiction is a way of presenting a true story or essay based on fact in a creative way. It is factual writing using the voice, eye and sensibility of the novelist but adhering to the truth as far as it can be understood. This presentation will provide a brief history, demonstrate the tools (and tricks) of the Creative Non-fiction writer and encourage anyone who wants to lift their non-fiction writing to the next level to try it out. Some handouts provided.
After the lunch break library staff will present a Super Sleuthing Workshop: Delve into databases, familiarise yourself with family history and cast around catalogues. Find out what the Library has on offer to help your writing, followed by Perfecting Podcasts: Introduction to podcasting.
If the library is closed please enter through the side doors opposite the park. A committee member will be there to let you in. Also don’t forget to bring your lunch as opportunities to purchase it are limited.
