Do you have a story to tell, but don’t know where to start? or what should happen in the middle? or how it ends? Or perhaps you already have your beginning, middle and end, but just need a little encouragement to tease them out and onto the page. Professional scriptwriter and author David Tomlinson offers a step-by-step introduction to the techniques of storytelling, covering the development of a basic idea, structuring a framework, creating convincing characters, and polishing your final draft (whether it be a short story, novel, film/tv script or stage play). The workshop will break down the process of storytelling into its essential components, demonstrating what comes where and when, and most important of all, through a series of simple exercises, will help you develop the tools to start putting pen to paper with confidence. David was a writer/producer at the BBC (where he also ran a scriptwriting workshop), and over a long career has worked with talents such as Ricky Gervais, Mackenzie Crook, Simon Pegg, Martin Freeman, David Mitchell, and Oscar-winner Olivia Colman. He has a PhD in Creative Writing, and is currently in the middle of a commission to write a series of children’s books for an American publisher. If you have commercial ambitions, or just want to write for fun, this workshop will get you up and running. No previous experience is required, just a little curiosity and a wish to explore the potential of your imagination. Saturday 13 April 2024 10am - 4pm with David Tomlinson This workshop takes place at: North Yorks Art School 2-4 South Street Scarborough YO11 2BP Includes all materials, lunch and refreshments.
