Paperboat: Stories From Real Life
Sat 16 Mar 2019 to Sat 16 Mar 2019
Do you have an interesting story in your past? Would you like to learn how historical research can be found and used to inspire great stories - whether fictional or biographical?

Author Rachel Malik will use her skills as a novelist, teacher and historical researcher to lead a fun one-day workshop for writers of all levels, that will use true stories and materials to create a great piece of writing. 

Whether you have aspirations to write fiction or biography, this workshop will provide you with the essential techniques required to turn your writing goals into reality. By the end of the day you will have created a piece of flash fiction inspired by a family event from the past, or inspired by materials provided at the workshop. Understand how real life stories can be turned into something that grabs the reader.

Rachel Malik is the author of the critically acclaimed Miss Boston and Miss Hargreaves (Penguin) which was inspired when she discovered a fascinating story from her Grandmother’s life.

She’ll be using her skills as a writer, historical researcher and former lecturer in English to lead this friendly one-day workshop held in the quirky creative space of the award-winning Wheatsheaf pub.

Date: 16 March 2019, 10-4
Location: The Wheatsheaf Creative Space, Chilton Foliat, Nr Hungerford
Tickets: £75 (includes soup/sandwich at the award-winning pub).
