Fiction inspired by true events requires an author to decide which facts to include or forgo in the story. While it’s tempting to use every piece of information uncovered in background research, it may prove detrimental to the fictionalized version of the character. Instead, creating a “psychological profile” of the protagonist will help with plot development, secondary characters, and dialogue. Author Eileen Brill will read from her debut novel A Letter in the Wall and discuss the inspiration for her story and how she incorporated fact with fiction.
Fee: $35.00
