Filling in the gaps of history: weaving fiction through fact with Pip Williams

📷: Andre Goosen

Bestselling author Pip Williams (The Dictionary of Lost Words) will explore how fiction can shine a light into the shadows of history to tell compelling stories that may not have been recorded – yet. You will explore elements of storytelling, writing craft and research, and reflect on the value of a historical tale told well. Participants will be asked to submit questions in advance, to be used to structure the content of the workshop, which will also include reflections on writing The Dictionary of Lost Words, writing exercises and group insights.

In this workshop, you’ll explore ideas around how we can unmask and reconnect the disparate pieces of ourselves, on both a personal and collective level – immersing ourselves in the idea of writing as a means for transformation.
