Share your articles about the craft of writing historical fiction, including research tips, plotting techniques, character development, time periods, setting descriptions, etc. Also, we’d love to hear about your experience at an HNS conference. Why did you go? What did you learn? How were you inspired?


Articles must be between 500 and 1000 words. You may include links to relevant novels in a short bio at the end of the article and include a picture of yourself and up to three of your book covers. Please do not submit descriptions and plot summaries of specific novels.

All submissions accepted for inclusion in the Historical Fiction Update and on the HNSNA Conference Website must be publication-ready and will be lightly copy edited.
