"Great Beginnings for Novels
Your First Line, First Pages"

What is this event?
You've heard that if the first paragraph of your novel isn't strong enough, agents and publishers won't read the first page, let alone the first fifty. Now you can learn how to separate fact from fiction and remain true to your story. Learn to draft a first line that will grab an acquisition editor and announce your authority as an author.

Now you can take advantage of a live read and critique at "Great Beginnings of Your Novel Your First Line, First Pages."

This live workshop will cover first pages, first chapters, and first characters. This is a unique opportunity for you to learn how pros consider the merits of the material and the intent of the author, then offer improvements covering everything from glaring grammar errors to story-structure flaws to the overall storytelling and more

Bring six (6) copies of your first 2 pages. Selected works will be read aloud, so the audience can follow along and learn how an agent or publisher reviews a manuscript. Time permitting, they may suggest improving the samples.
The Panel of Experts
A panel of literary professionals, agents and professional editors will include: Howard Hendrix, Whitney Davis, Helga Schier, Marlan Warren, M. Todd Gallowglas, Marco Subias (M)
