More than jotting down the facts
21st October 2017 @ 1:00pm - 3:30pm
Writing non-fiction seems of little challenge – one just jots down the facts, right? But Don McDowell’s long experience in non-fiction writing leads him to conclude that all the usual issues still stand. Plots need to be developed, the audience and readership have to be considered if writing style is to present the story so that it has the desired impact. There are many ways to approach telling factual stories, and this workshop will cover them, their benefits or disadvantages depending upon the theme, and how the writer needs to plan, plan and further plan if the non-fiction story is to attract and hold an audience.
