History is said to be stranger than fiction. In many cases, it's true. History is not bound to the conventions of stories, thus, it offers opportunities for fresh material. At the same time, writing historical fiction can be intimidating: there is a degree of historical fidelity that the writer must maintain while not alienating readers through departures from story conventions.

How to Write Historical Fiction is a six-hour crash course that covers how to frame fiction within historical events as well as deal with the questions related to how historically faithful must historical fiction be.

Note: Participants of this workshop are highly encouraged to bring source material, whether primary or secondary, that they'd like to use as the basis for their story.

How to Write Historical Fiction is taught by Dr. Joem Antonio. He has won eight Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards, including second prize for "The Last Filipino," a full-length play on Apolinario Mabini, and first prize for "The Floret Road," a full-length play on Jose Rizal. He has a Ph.D. in Creative Writing from UP Diliman and is currently the Program Director of the MA Humanities program at the University of Asia and the Pacific.
