Fiction and Family History

Hemingway famously said to write about what you know, and for many writers,their family lives and family histories form a rich and complex body of knowledge. That said, writing about your family carries inherent risks – both interpersonal, if you are dealing with active elements of family life and history, and creative, in terms of achieving the right kind of balance between poetic license and fidelity to actual facts. This workshop looks at the question of writing fiction from family history with a particular focus on the necessary tension between license and fidelity.
