Advanced Weekend Fiction Intensive: Grand Entrances with Jami Attenberg

$525.00 Members
$585.00 Non-members

Sometimes all it takes is a great first sentence to convince a reader to spend the next three hundred pages with your book. We’ll look at texts that have compelling beginnings, ones which instantly hook the reader with their irresistible plots, addictive voices, and instantly fascinating characters. Additionally, a talk on stake-building will be given. In critiques we’ll examine the first fifteen-twenty pages of students’ work, focusing on grabbing the attention of the reader, agent, or editor – and keeping them interested. Accepted participants will submit up to 20 pages by noon (MST) on May 8.

Applications for Lit Fest advanced workshops close on March 14 and can be found here. Learn more about Lit Fest Advanced Workshops here. Accepted writers will be given the password to register for the workshop in late March.
