What makes a compelling start to a short story or a novel? How do you hook your readers, and get them to care for your characters? How do you fulfill expectations for the pages that follow? This course is designed to give you feedback on the first pages of a story or novel chapter. Every week, we will examine a fundamental aspect of craft and provide a constructive critique of your work.
This course is perfect for those starting out in fiction, and also adapted to writers who have already completed a manuscript and want to hone their draft before seeking publication
