Historical fiction allows us to explore the untold stories of ordinary people. In this creative writing workshop, we will use documents from the archive to imagine the stories of people who walked, talked, ate, drank and worked in London’s streets. This is one of three workshops on writing historical fiction this autumn. You are welcome to book them individually or to attend all three. See entries for 24 October and 21 November. Facilitator: Anna James.
