After The Madness Workshop – sign up now!

Monday, 19 March 2012  |  Posted by Brenda Drake

When reading for our recent PitchMadness, we noticed the entries that didn’t make it to the agent match was because the first words weren’t hooking us. There wasn’t a unique element to pull us in, the setting was right but the action was too familiar, or the story started in the wrong place. So we decided to do another workshop focusing solely on the opening page.

Shelley Watters, Erica Chapman, and the writers at YAtopia are joining me in critiquing your opening words on their sites this month.

Here how it’s going down…

If you want to join in sign up on the linky below. Remember your entry will be placed on our blogs and critiqued not only by us but also by your peers. We’re accepting up to 40 60 participants. We’ll be critiquing two each per day starting March 26. Depending on the success, we may open another round at a later date. After you sign up on the linky below email your first 250 words of your manuscript (finished or unfinished – any genre) to brendadrakecontests@gmail.com. Again, don’t wait. Email your entries right away.

Only the first 40 60 will make it into the workshop, so hurry and sign-up now!
