Using Personal Experience in Fiction, by Sara Ellie MacKenzie
Monday, August 8, 2022
Via ZOOM at 630 pm
Using Personal Experience in Fiction
Author Sara Ellie MacKenzie
Topic: Rather than writing from normal experience or research, Sara shares how to weave life’s unusual experiences into your story.
Sara has experienced generational trauma, discrimination, abuse, and assault in her life. She shows you how she used this negative background to craft her theme, plot, and characters in her books.
And, more importantly, how working with negative circumstances in writing can create an outlet for solving problems and healing.
Sara Ellie MacKenzie is the author of: A World So Bright and Dark: The Journal of Lizzie Coleen MacDougal. She is also author of the following series: Casting Shadows: Wrapped in the Rays of the Sun Volume I; The Circle is Broken: Wrapped in the Rays of the Sun, Volume II; Through the Meadow: (will be released soon) Wrapped in the Rays of the Sun Volume III.
Her books are available from Amazon. Sara can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
