Do you wonder what editors at publishing companies, magazines, and literary journals are thinking when they read the opening page of your memoir or personal essay? What are they looking for? What makes them want to keep reading?
If so, join your fellow Writespace members as we learn from each other in this supportive roundtable of first page critiques.
Our three-hour session will explore various craft elements essential to beginning a compelling memoir or personal essay. These lessons will be drawn specifically from our own work, with the exception of the opening page of a published memoir and a published personal essay used as mentor texts. By session’s end, attending writers will attain 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 read our submissions. Please bring to workshop eleven printed hard copies of the first page of an aspiring book-length memoir or stand-alone personal essay to share with the group. You will leave with ten copies of your page full of comments, questions, observations, and suggestions.
