Historical fiction is, as its name suggests, a huge, hybrid genre. From Out of the Dust to Outlander, from a small story for young adults to a fabulously successful adult series that spans several centuries, historical fiction encompasses almost all of time and all of storytelling.

Award-winning fiction writer Deno Trakas will offer insights and guidance to help participants find the story that they can tell successfully.
