Turning Your Personal History into Fiction Writing Workshop
Presented by Gemini Ink Literary Arts Center
March 23 - April 13, 2016
Whether writing a short story, screenplay, or novel, mine the richest material you have: your personal history. Complete short assignments and in-class exercises, taking a memory from your life and transforming it into a scene, chapter, or short story. Learn to reveal characters through action, heightening conflict, and story structure.
Billy Taylor is the author of Based on the Movie, a comic novel inspired by his years of working in the film industry, and Thieving Weasels, a YA thriller to be published in 2016 by Dial Books for Young Readers.
