Researching nonfiction and turning it into fiction

I had a great time with some great folks at AllWriters Workplace & Workshop in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on July 18. I was honored to be asked by director and founder Kathie Giorgio to teach a class there during one of the Celebrity Saturdays. Apparently, I’m some celebrity or something … a minor one I’m sure.

The topic was “Researching Nonfiction and Turning it into Fiction.”

We discussed the many methods that can be used to uncover clues to the story behind the story. In addition, we talked about some ideas on turning your research into nonfiction without losing the integrity of the original story.

Here are a few photos that my wife shot of the workshop and the studio:
