Blighters, Bounders, Scamps or Scallywags? Getting your era to feel right. ‘The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there,’ said LP Hartley. How can you conjure this foreign country in your writing?

This session considers not just the language, clothing and technology of different eras, but also behaviour, attitudes and expectations.
