Members-Only Literary Fiction First Page Feedback Session

Members-Only Literary Fiction First Page Feedback Session

Please note: This workshop is for Writespace members only—if you are not a member and would like to attend, please join Writespace at this link.

Are you a literary fiction writer who has wondered what a critique from a professional editor is like? Do you wish you could have an editor’s support and feedback, but you don’t feel ready to incur the cost? Or are you just starting out and would like to know what’s important to keep in mind as you begin to work on your novel or short story?

In this three-hour workshop we will embark upon a fast, fun, and in-depth adventure in which we explore the fundamentals and subtleties of dozens of craft elements essential to composing great literary fiction stories. By the end of our session, attending writers will have attained greater clarity about what questions good writers ask as they work, as well as a clearer sense of what editors and agents look for when they receive a pitch or a submission.

Also, each writer will be assigned an exercise or prompt customized to the page we critiqued and designed to vitalize both the specific work and the writer’s development.

Please bring to workshop ten printed copies of the first page of a work of literary fiction for the group and the instructor’s review. It’s fine if your submission stops mid-sentence instead of ending at a “natural place.”
