Writing Engaging Opening Pages
Hooking your readers (or agents and editors) at the start is one of the most important parts of writing a novel. This workshop will cover what you need to accomplish in the first pages of your book, including the three most important elements your beginning lines, scenes, and chapter must include. The instructor will use examples from well-known published books to illustrate these principles and may invite participants to share their first pages for critique and discussion.
