Free Fiction Workshop

Important Note: Due to the threat of bad weather, this workshop has been rescheduled for Feb. 6th at the same time and location.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to snag an agent's or editor's (or masses of readers') attention from the very first lines -- and then keep it?

For those in the Greater Houston area (particularly on the North side), I'd like to invite you to attend a free workshop I'll be presenting on the subject. On Tuesday, Jan. 16th, the Woodlands Writers Guild meets at 6:30 PM at the South Montgomery County Community Center on Grogan's Mill Rd. (next to the public library). After the business meeting, I'll give a one-hour presentation called "Emotionally Engage from the Very First Page," which focuses on techniques to quickly pull the reader into your work of fiction. Attendees are welcome to bring the opening page of a work in progress to share and discuss.

Not in the area or have a conflict with the time? Don't worry. I'll be teaching an expanded version of this interactive workshop online for the Outreach Chapter of the Romance Writers of America on July 23rd to August 3rd. (This particular workshop, by the way, is geared to all commercial fiction writers, not just those working in the field of romance.) The cost of this online class is only $10 for Outreach members or $20 for nonmembers.
