Paul Auster wrote that ‘the truth of the story lies in the details’, but if you’re writing about a subject you don’t know intimately, how do you find those authentic details? In this workshop, author Eleanor Limprecht explores research tools that can help you improve your writing by discovering the detail. Unlock practical information about available resources and how to access them, and learn about topics such as how to organise your research, the ethics of research and how much research is enough.
