Engaging Beginnings, Middles, & Endings
Sunday, January 24 - 1:00 PM
Whether you’re writing a picture book, chapter book or novel for young readers, what are the elements you need for a great beginning? How much is enough to introduce the story and what is too much information? How do you manage the murky, meandering middle without getting sidetracked by beautifully written scenes that don’t move the story forward? How do you craft that powerful, satisfying, memorable ending? In the first class we’ll talk about the tools to create your beginnings, middles, and endings. For the second class, you’ll bring your new beginning, your outline or game plan for the middle, or your revised ending.
