The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 13 – Pages 2 to 50

March 2 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

6:00 – 7:30:  The Craft:  The First 50 Pages (Gerke) – Ch 13 – Pages 2 to 50

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

It’s dizzying, isn’t it, how much your first fifty pages will accomplish.  Hopefully you’re not thinking, ‘I understood all this … until you explained it.’  You’ve learned the equivalent of a college course’s worth of material on this subject.  Indeed, you’re now as much an expert on how to begin a novel as just about anyone else.

But we’re not quite there, yet!  The next 49 pages are as much about what not to do as they are about what we should do.  Come join us as we learn how to balance our content.

Homework:  Read Chapter 13 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!
