Dr Maria Hill is a professional historian with a PhD in History. She has written award winning history books and teaching kits for schools.

In this workshop Maria will share the methods historians use when ‘Writing about the Past’ to help writers of historical fiction and non-fiction avoid the usual pitfalls. She will offer some guidelines on what you ‘do’ and ‘don’t do’ when writing ‘true stories’ or fictional accounts based on a ‘true story’. Bring along some of your writing that you would be happy to discuss and share with the group.
