Event Description

Sunday Masterclass: LISTENING FOR HIDDEN HISTORIES, WRITING FOR ADULTS

Whose stories do we get to hear in historical fiction? How do we flip the narrative to open up space to hear a more diverse range of voices? Using a rich range of archival material to inspire, this workshop explores techniques to develop unique character perspectives and voices for compelling historical fiction for adults. Zoom delivery, cost £25

21 May, 11am-1pm

Joanna Brown - aka J.T. Williams - is a writer with a passion for hidden histories. She writes to shine a light on the Black British past, blending archival research with creative storytelling to reimagine and recover lost life stories. A lifelong Londoner, she walks the city to uncover its secrets.

Joanna also writes for children with inclusive fiction studio Storymix as J.T. Williams. Her debut novel The Lizzie and Belle Mysteries: Drama and Danger was published by Farshore Books in June 2022. The follow-up, Portraits and Poison will be published in April 2023.
