TOP REVIEWS FROM PLAGUES, WITCHES, AND WAR: THE WORLDS OF HISTORICAL FICTION
Lovely course for historical fiction enthusiast. There's a wonderful reading list required to read as well as multiple guest speakers besides the professor to help explain more about the genre.
Too good! The instructor was way too awesome. I am not from Arts or Literature background yet understood everything easily. The author interactions were a really good learning experience
Learned so much, I might take this course again! It prompted me to read several books I had not read before as well as learn much about my own writing. Thanks!
Exceptional lead instructor and guest speakers. Added tremendously to my knowledge of the genre, even though I am an author of historical fiction with a PhD in History.
