Acclaimed historical fiction author Clare
Harvey has used both family ancestry and
local wartime history to inspire her own work,
and in this new, four-part workshop she will
guide you to do the same.
Using fascinating images from the Inspire Picture Archive, or even your own old family photos, Clare will take you through a series of structured writing prompts to help you discover your own story and create fiction from the past.
Whether you’re already a writer, or would just like to give it a go, after four weeks you will have the basis of a piece of historical fiction of your own – be it a short story, flash fiction, or even the opening scenes to your next novel.

Her first book The Gunner Girl won both the Exeter Novel Prize and the Joan Hessayon Award for debut fiction. The Gunner Girl was inspired by her mother-in-law's time on the ack-ack guns in WW2, and written when her soldier husband was on an operational tour of Afghanistan.
