Brilliant Openings: How to Hook Your Reader From Word One (ZOOM)

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

Writing’s all fun and games until the rejections start piling up. In this intensive (though informal!) workshop, we’ll aim to make sure your stories or essays draw the reader in, rather than leaving them in the dark. We’ll take a second look at your opening pages, as well as the opening pages of works by Lorrie Moore, Saul Bellow, and others, in an effort to understand how they hook readers from word one.
