YESTERDAY IS SOMEONE ELSE'S TODAY:
Bringing Characters from the Past to Life

with

Kathleen Kent

Saturday, March 23, 10 AM-1 PM

10809 Garland Road, Dallas 75218

This 3-hour class is for all levels of  writers from beginners to advanced. Participants
will either have an idea for a novel-length work, but feel daunted by the challenge,
or  already have begun the process, but are unsure of how to structure their current

narrative to the long form.

Kathleen Kent, who wrote her first book "on the runway to fifty," will discuss her
own strategies for completing and publishing her bestselling novel, The Heretic's
Daughter. Participants are encouraged to bring samples of their own work for review
and discussion.  (Author's note: there will be no editorial "critique" of shared
work, only gentle observations.)

which will be published by Little Brown in the U.S. this coming September.

INTRODUCTION to HISTORICAL FICTION
with
Patricia Falvey

10809 Garland Road, Dallas 75218

This 2.5-hour class is for all levels of  writers, from beginners to advanced ,

This workshop will focus on the challenges in writing in this particular genre,
notably "the Big Five":  Authenticity of Place, Character, and Dialogue;Historical
Context; and Research. Writers will weigh the quantity of historical detail against
the elements of fiction, and work on putting the story first, while striving for
a compelling sense of history. Perfect "companion" piece for upcoming workshops
with Kathleen Kent [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001sSQNwY4xv4fnJ6jQa4CW14EecJQqJvXPjGMV8jbwykcSl0KJQQrOXOGQyeAqtKQSCEj-WvvuW2red3u_qRGFFUQeMVHHYQiMtmtcUA1Mqdr9AeSH3OwDBxO5XelX-jeKZdpuZovCvjs0C1KhbklreuRU1GjGqx1E]

novel, The Yellow House, was published in 2010, and her second novel, The Linen

out last year.

Praise for THE LINEN QUEEN: "... deftly rides the line between a fervently romantic
love story and a heartfelt love letter to Northern Ireland." - Publisher's Weekly

About THE YELLOW HOUSE: "This novel delivers the best of both worlds: secrets, intrigue
and surprising twists will keep readers flipping the pages, while Falvey's insight
and poetic writing tugs at the heartstrings of the most cynical audiences."
