1H: First Impressions: How to Hook an Agent or Editor with Your Opening Pages FULL
Limited Capacity filling up

You only get one chance to make a first impression. When it comes to your written work, this means that your opening pages are critical! Why? Well, if an agent or editor isn’t hooked by your submission immediately he or she will put it down and move on. It’s as simple as that. In this seminar, literary agent Amaryah Orenstein will show you how to capture a reader’s attention with your opening pages and how to avoid the weak openings that lead to instant rejection. Please submit your first 3 pages in advance and bring a copy to class for a lively and engaging critique.

Submit your pages here by Sunday, March 17th.
