Finding the extraordinary story right in front of you.
In episode 36 of Working Title podcast, I chat with author and scholar Bruce Holsinger. We discuss his latest novel, The Gifted School, and all things research. How the idea for his previous novel sprang from his reviewing centuries-old inventory documents, where you can find allies in your own research, tips for reaching out to subject matter experts, ways to introduce your characters to the reader, and more.
Also, Bruce will be presenting a pre-conference Master Class on the Craft of Character in Richmond, Va. on Friday, October 11. The next day, Sat Oct. 12, the annual James River Writers conference begins and concludes on Sun. Oct. 13.
We hope to see you there!
