First Paragraphs and Publishing: Writer’s Shop Talk, by Coffee House Writer’s Group

When: Friday June 13, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Where: Buddhamouse Emporium, 134 Yale Ave, Claremont

What: This will be a workshop/session covering first paragraphs and focusing on the contract between reader and writer and what sort of story the reader expects from the first paragraph or two (or longer for novels). The class is designed around what publishers are looking for in fiction and how to craft a first paragraph that lays the foundation for the rest of the story.

How much: This workshop is free to the public.

Using Meditation to Overcome Writer’s Block

When: Friday June 27 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
