ClassResearch Tools for Authentic Historical Fiction and Nonfiction
Are you a writer of historical fiction or nonfiction and you don’t know how or where to find information on the time period you’re writing about? This class will show you where to find textbooks, old newspapers, photographs, voice recordings, illustrations, photos and descriptions of historical and religious relics, and maps—ancient nautical maps to modern city maps—of all types to add authenticity and depth to period-based fiction and accuracy to historical nonfiction.
Resources covered in this class will be available to find either online or in-person—this class is especially aimed at the researcher with a limited budget. The basics of compiling a bibliography will also be covered as well as how to get permissions for using photographs in published work.
