Researching and Writing Non-Fiction

Non-fiction is no longer seen as the poor relation to fiction. The good non-fiction writer brings to their chosen subject judgement, imagination and creativity. The more successfully you do this, the more interesting and engaging your book will be.

Whatever your reason for writing – perhaps telling your family history or personal life story, exploring a fascinating topic or event or writing a biography – this course is for you.

Whether you are still deciding on your subject, have made a tentative start or are already deeply into the work, you can find inspiration and develop your writing skills with award-winning editor and writer Sandra Hempel, author of the Radio 4 Book of the Week, The Inheritor’s Powder.
