PRESENTER: Todd Mitchell

Saturday, May 5, 9:30-10:30 a.m.

Every book is a world unto itself, and it's the role of the beginning not only to entice the reader into that world, but to get the reader to believe in the wholeness and completeness of that world from the very first word on. In this interactive workshop, award-winning author Todd Mitchell will discuss beginning strategies, and give tips and common editor suggestions for making beginnings work. Participants are encouraged to bring in the first two pages (typed) of a beginning they'd like to share and get feedback on.
