An Introduction to Creative Non-fiction
What is it? Where to start? How to find a publisher for it... Creative non-fiction includes everything from popular science (Longitude), travel writing (Notes from a Small Island), nature writing (H is for Hawk), popular biography (Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire), history (The Queen’s Houses) and memoir/autobiography (A Street Cat Named Bob). This short workshop will give you an insight into how to approach your subject, how to make it readable for the general public and how to market it and or pitch it to a publisher.
