Pitch Wars Webinars: First Chapter Masterclass

Monday, 30 October 2017  |  Posted by Brenda Drake


Pitch Wars Webinars presents . . .

A First Chapter Masterclass

This webinar provides a simple approach to writing a killer opening so that readers (and agents) are begging you for more! In this two hour masterclass, we will:

  • Create a first chapter blueprint that uses goals, roadblocks, and voice so that you can hook your readers from Page 1
  • Dissect how the world’s best writers are using variations of this blueprint to create wildly different openings so that you can use this blueprint to write a highly original opening no matter what your genre or style
  • Workshop a few lucky participants’ openings live so that you can see exactly how to take a good opening and make it unforgettable

The Details…

When: Wednesday, November 8

Time: 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm ET 

Cost: $20

Please note: Registration is limited to the first 50 participants.

About Pitch Wars Webinars . . .

The Pitch Wars webinar series was developed to help writers at every stage of their careers. Mentors and industry experts will host webinars focused on pitching, publishing, developing craft, and more.

Pitch Wars is a contest where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each, read their entire manuscript, and offer suggestions to shine it up for agents. The mentors work with their mentees for two months before an agent round. Learn more.
