Bold Beginnings

All Levels | The first sentence, first paragraph, first scene of our stories serves as a springboard for the full work. Often, any problem with our endings can be traced back to our beginning. Rather than meekly setting the scene, why not plunge full-on into a story’s richest conflict in all its complexity? In this class, we’ll look at the beginnings of several short stories, engage in low-pressure writing exercises, and leave class with at least three beginnings for new works.
