Doors open 7pm. Event starts on time at 7.30pm and ends at 9.30pm. The Square Club, Bristol
In this talk and discussion, award-winning author Tyler Keevil will explore how music can influence the way we writers work: both as a source of inspiration and as a means to help maintain our creative focus, and keep a project on track.
Tyler’s most recent novel, No Good Brother (The Borough Press / HarperCollins, 2018) was inspired in part by the music of his brother Jonathan Keevil, a professional composer and filmmaker.
Tyler Keevil grew up in Vancouver and in his mid-twenties moved to Wales.He writes novels, short stories, screenplays, and non-fiction, and has received numerous awards for his work, including The Missouri Review‘s Jeffrey E. Smith Editors’ Prize, the Wales Book of the Year People’s Prize, and the Writers’ Trust of Canada / McClelland and Stewart Journey Prize.
He is a lecturer in Creative Writing at Cardiff University.
Tyler is leading a workshop for writers in the afternoon at The Square Club from 2 – 4pm
