Writing Snappy Openings [Nicholas O’Connell]
Introductory/Intermediate | The opening is the most important part of the story. If your lead is not interesting, intriguing or entertaining, the reader may never get any farther. This class will introduce you to the five best leads for opening a story or book: summary, scenic, anecdote, inventory and beginning at the end. Class will include lecture, discussion, and in-class writing of a lead.
