Description

Part of Growing Room 2019

We will workshop the first five pages (double spaced) of your YA short story or novel with meticulous attention to the opening. We’ll scrutinize your language, character development, dialogue and exposition the way that agents, editors, and slush readers do before deciding to request more pages. Workshop facilitator will lead workshop group in a thoughtful and constructive discussion, and answer questions on finding an agent and publisher.

Please bring the first five pages of your manuscript (total of 13 copies for participants and instructor), a notebook, and writing instruments.

Instructor: Lindsay Wong
Venue: 24 West 4th Avenue
Date: Monday, March 11, 2019, 7:00pm – 9:30pm
Cost: $15
