Writing Historical Fiction, with Larissa Lai at TIFA
The Humber School for Writers returns to the Toronto International Festival of Authors with a series of daily professional writing masterclasses led by its renowned faculty members and special guests.

In this workshop, American-born Canadian novelist and literary critic Larissa Lai will discuss a range of writing techniques that can be used to create historical fiction. She will illustrate the challenges caused by knowing the past, and suggest how to represent it for contemporary readers. Learn what to do with dated language and behaviours, and how to bridge gaps between lot understandings and new ways of knowing.
