The joys and challenges of writing historical fiction

GENRE: Fiction
The Hurst

All fiction hangs on the hooks of fact, but historical writing, more than most, requires writers to lift our readers out of our time, place them into the foreign country of the past, and bring it alive in all its glory. Over the course of the week we will explore what it means to write fiction in a historical context, with a particular focus on the bear-traps – and garlands – that await historical writers.
