New York Writers Workshop FIRST STORIES: A Workshop in Fiction and Narrative Nonfiction with Tim Tomlinson
Dec. 7th, 2019
In this three-hour intensive on writing (fiction, memoir and personal essay) we'll consider some storytelling basics (setting, character, incident) and look at samples of narrative prose that illustrate those basics. Well use the samples as prompts for in-session exercises that, when put together, begin to move the way stories move: by raising questions, and by delaying answers. After this workshop, participants will have a firm grasp on storytelling approaches and a couple of drafts of new material for further development.
Tim Tomlinson is co-founder of New York Writers Workshop and co-author of its popular text, The Portable MFA in Creative Writing. He is also the author of Yolanda: An Oral History in Verse, Requiem for the Tree Fort I Set on Fire (poetry), and This Is Not Happening to You (short fiction). He teaches in the NYU Global Liberal Studies Program.
