Adrian Slatcher writes poetry, fiction and criticism, and lives in Manchester.
I am giving a workshop as part of the Calderdale Writers Workshop New Writing day in Brighouse Library on Saturday 10th September.
You can choose 2 workshops during the day – and mine is described below. As an example of my own creative non-fiction, you can read these 2 published pieces in this free download from Flax Books.
Adrian Slatcher – Creative Non-fiction for Writers
Non-fiction is not just for journalists or academics – it has a long history of being used creatively, and increasingly writers are using the tools of fiction to write non-fiction. This workshop will look at what is creative non-fiction; provide examples of how writers have and are using fictional techniques in non-fiction and discuss the rise of blogs and the blogger.
In this workshop you will gain experience of writing creatively and be given some tools and techniques on how to do so.
