Make Me Care: The First 20 Pages of Your Novel

October 25, 2018 @ EST 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


“Make me care” is the first rule of storytelling, especially in your opening, where you either hook or lose a reader. In this hands-on workshop you’ll learn how to craft strong first pages to make a manuscript “unputdownable,” common mistakes and how to avoid them, which plot points to introduce and which to unfold, and techniques to keep readers turning pages. Class members will share the first 20 pages of their work-in-progress, which we’ll workshop to make a more compelling opening.
