History Writing

Mon 4 Nov 2013 @ 18:00 - Sat 9 Nov 2013 @ 14:00

We believe that true narratives can be as gripping, as literary and as appealing to the general reader as imagined stories, and we have evolved writing techniques to reflect those standards. Explaining our methods, we will help participants enhance their own capabilities in non-fiction and provide a practical toolkit for realising them.

Roger Hutchinson is a critic and author of biography and social history. The Soap Man was shortlisted for the Saltire Book of the Year 2004 and his bestselling Calum’s Road for
the Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize in 2007.
Emma Wood’s acclaimed history books include Notes from the North: a Brief History of the Scots and the English, The Hydro Boys and Peatbog, Plagues and Potatoes. She lives
in the Highlands
Guest Alistair Moffat has written 22 books, most of them on Scotland’s history, and is working on a history book based on new research into our genome.

Arvon’s residential writing courses run from Monday afternoon to Saturday morning. Each course is tutored by two professional writers plus a guest writer who visits mid-week to read their work and answer your questions. There are daily workshops over four days running from Tuesday to Friday, and a one-to-one tutorial with each tutor too.
