Ayala Museum presents
Concepts in Narrative Fiction and Non-fiction
with Tim Tomlinson
August 5, 7, and 10, 2015 | 6:00 – 8:30 PM
How do you begin a story? How do you make readers keep turning the pages? How do you choose a perfect ending?
This three-weeknight workshop will teach the basics of fiction and non-fiction writing (structure and elements) using lectures, discussions, group exercises, and open workshopping of written pieces. Each course participant will learn the different strategies and techniques in creating effective openings and endings as well a rich body that will captivate readers.
This workshop is open to all advanced writers (beginners are welcome, but might find the course challenging without knowledge of basic concepts.)
ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
The speaker, Tim Tomlinson, holds an MFA in Fiction from Columbia University’s School of the Arts. At Columbia, he studied with Richard Price, Russell Banks, Robert Stone, and Edmund White. While his time at university was valuable, he’s always been a believer in experiential learning, and of writing that comes from imaginative handling of personal experience.
Tim is also a co-founder of New York Writers Workshop, and co-author of its popular text, The Portable MFA in Creative Writing. His fiction and poetry have appeared in numerous venues, in print and online, including The Missouri Review, The Gettysburg Review, The North American Review, The New York Quarterly, Pank, the Asia Writes Project, and Salt River Review. Tim has been running workshops since 1991, and he’s taught or consulted in the US, the UK, Italy, Thailand, Singapore, and China.
