‘Journalism is merely history’s first draft.’ - Geoffrey C. Ward
Newspapers, letters and diaries provide us with a fascinating and
often frank insight into the past with plain-spoken, lively and intimate recollections of the minutiae of private and public lives. For those interested in writing historical fiction they are valuable sources of information.
This day school will examine the commonalities of human experience such as birth, marriage and death which are detailed in written accounts and how personal memories can inform historians and writers about societal values whilst revealing the exceptionality of the individual.
The risk and pleasure of personal expression displayed in diaries, the cultural conventions used in letter-writing, and the inflammatory, often out-spoken tone of the newspaper will be considered, as will intended audiences and the reliability of the written word.
This day school will involve practical writing exercises.
