Write a killer first line, a killer first page, and a killer first chapter with local author Sarah Smith.
Writers know how crucial it is to hook a reader as soon as possible. But how exactly do you do that? By nailing three very important firsts: a killer first line, a killer first page, and a killer first chapter. Learn how to write all of these at this workshop taught by local author Sarah Smith. Sarah is the author of five romcom novels, one women's fiction novel, and co-writer of the audio series Power Trip starring Tatiana Maslany. She's excited to share her writing methods and tips with workshop attendees.
Bring a notebook or laptop, pens, and any stories/manuscripts/drafts you are currently working on and would like to workshop.
