FEBRUARY 14 LSFW MEETING

WRITING FROM THE REAL: Constructing fiction from facts

Truth is stranger than fiction.

Many times, the facts are so strange, fiction makes them believable.

Join us on Saturday, February 14th at the main branch of the Edison Public Library for:

WRITING FROM THE REAL: Constructing fiction from facts

with crime novelist Alex Segura

As a former crime reporter, Segura knows all about facts: digging them up, sifting through the detritus, and piecing the parts together into a cohesive and concise narrative.

What facts from life – your own, family and friends, and even strangers – can (or should) you use? Even the most innocuous tidbits hold the secret to a plot twist or defining character quirk. How do you mine your reality to construct a riveting story others want to read?  Alex will take you through the process.

While your novel unfolds, there’s also the construction of the YOU narrative. Your own story needs to be told in a fascinating way – and no one can tell that as well as you. As a PR expert, Alex will show you how to connect YOUR story to your work in progress.

Alex will also be signing and selling SILENT CITY directly after the presentation.
