Non Fiction Workshop (Part 1)

Hone your skills in non-fiction writing with this comprehensive, three-part workshop at The Writers Centre! A trio of T&T’s most established and accomplished non-fiction writers will take you through the essential stages of defining non-fiction; selecting your subject matter; conducting effective interviews; best practices in sourcing material, and more.

On October 13th, Debbie Jacob will guide you in an introductory session that centres on the uniqueness of non-fiction, with specific examples, a top ten ‘must read’ book list, and writing exercises to get your writing flowing! On October 20th, Tracy Assing will talk you through the complex and fascinating world of oral histories, complete with insights into the art of the interview. In your final session, Judy Raymond will prepare you to approach biography writing, detailing the differences in biographies of the dead and the living, with a focus on the importance of telling our stories.

Cost: TT$450.00 (for the series)
