Where Do You Start: Writing Beginnings

Sat, May 21 from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT
Virtual Event Virtual Event

$75

The  first sentences of a work can connect instantly to your character and their dilemma so that your reader is immediately hooked into your story. In this 3 hour class, we’ll unpack the beginnings from our favorite books and movies to understand how everything you release in the first paragraphs is vital for your story arc. We’ll also practice writing story beginnings. Bring a piece you’re working on or jump into something new.

Access Program
We want our writing classes and Delves to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. We understand that our tuition structure can present obstacles for some people. Our Access Program offers writing class and Delve tuitions at a reduced rate. The access program for writing classes covers 60% of the class tuition. Most writing classes have at least one access spot available.

Please apply here for access rate tuition. Contact Susan Moore at susan@literary-arts.org if you have questions.
