Creative Non-Fiction: True Stories Well Told


Creative non-fiction can be any length and take many forms including memoir and biography, personal essay and narrative poetry; what defines it isn’t its form but its relationship with truth. Non-fiction means it must be based on facts, so the ‘creative’ part doesn’t mean being creative with the truth but using creative techniques to craft engaging and meaningful stories out of it.

This workshop is an opportunity to think about the choice of narratives you might use to tell your own stories or other people’s and to look at how techniques such as dialogue, plotting and characterisation can help you tell a great story whilst still remaining truthful to the facts.
