October Third Thursday: "Writing Great First Pages and Chapters"
Please note, this event has expired.
Our Third Thursday program offers free and open to the public monthly discussions on the craft and business of writing.
Writers are often told that the first page and first chapter of a novel must be gripping, un-put-downable. But what does that mean? Given all the different genres and types of stories out there, are there any general rules or suggestions for what will keep readers, agents, and editors turning past page one? In this panel, four writers from different genres will discuss what they strive for in their own work and first pages from others’ novels they have admired.
