So you've finally finished your novel, and you're ready to query agents. Or maybe you've been querying, but you've only received rejections--or worse, not heard back at all. Now is the time to revisit those opening pages to make your story pop. In this session, we will discuss what it takes to stand out in a sea of slush, including tips on how to (1) write a dynamite first line (and hook), (2) establish the stakes for the character, (3) launch into a scene to get the story moving, and (4) streamline and polish the language to get your writing noticed.
