Top 10 Tips for Translating Research Into Fiction

Top 10 Tips for Translating Research Into Fiction | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Writers have long been blurring fiction and nonfiction, for example, in genres such as historical fiction and creative nonfiction. There is a new movement with scholars across the disciplines using fiction as a research practice in order to more fully express their cumulative knowledge and to make the research findings more publicly accessible and engaging. The result of this work is called fiction-based research (and is an outgrowth of the widely known arts-based research movement). The tools that fiction-based researchers are using may be of value to any author wishing to combine careful research in their literary writing.
