Winning at Fiction: How to Build a Better First Page

with Susan DeFreitas of Indigo Editing & Publications

Why should agents or editors pick your book out of that mile-high slush pile on their desk? Why should bookstore browsers lay down the cold, hard cash to buy your book? Answer: because your first sentence, first paragraph, and first page are so arresting, they can't put it down. In this workshop, writers of prose will learn effective techniques for winning "the war of art" on the very first page, along with some common pitfalls to avoid before sending a work out for consideration. (Writers should come with the first page of a book, story, or essay, and be prepared to offer constructive feedback.)
