Narrative Non-Fiction: Finding Stories in Facts with Anna Ploszajski

June 16, 2022

Join scientist-turned-storyteller Dr Anna Ploszajski in this interactive workshop on how to bring your non-fiction writing alive by using tools from the world of storytelling.

We’ll consider story structure, including how to find stories in facts, and how to handle multiple storylines spanning different tenses and topics. We’ll look at the dos-and-don'ts of characterisation when you’re writing about yourself and other (living!) people. And we’ll put it all together with an exercise drafting your own skeleton non-fiction story.

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be writing story-led non-fiction with narratives that rival those of our fiction-writing counterparts.
