The first paragraph of a short story or novel pulls the reader from open water and provides a life raft. Often, the first paragraph grounds the reader in time, place, and character. In some cases, the writer provides much information up front – who, what, when, where – and in some cases, the writer provides just enough.
During this 4-week bootcamp, we'll investigate what makes a great beginning and what pitfalls to avoid. We'll read published examples and craft our own powerful, compelling beginnings.
