The Craft: The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 12 – The First Page

February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

6:00 – 7:30:  The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 12 – The First Page

Bring a cup of joe, sit back, and relax. Catch up with old friends. Make some new ones.  Then…

It’s a lot easier to come up with a great first line and first page than it is to fix a beginning that is structured wrong or fails to accomplish the tasks it should.  Better to get the main things right and then come back and find the ideal way to begin that.

From the first word to the first line, the first page, and all that follows.  Tonight we’ll learn how to make it flow.

Homework:  Read Chapter 12 before arriving.

7:30 – 9:00:  Tre Critique

Tre Critique is  three-member team approach to more dynamic and informative critiques of our work.  By both giving and receiving two critiques each week, the quality of your writing will improve at a rapid pace and reach high quality in the shortest possible time.  Variations resulting from uneven groups include two and four members in a critique group.

Please review this link for details.

See you there!
