Beginnings

Presenter: Rob Davidson

The beginning of a short story or novel is like a welcome mat, inviting the reader to knock on the door and step inside. But beginnings can be difficult to execute. In this workshop we’ll examine four different strategies for beginning a new fiction, and then draft an opening paragraph or two. Whether you’re starting a new story, or looking for fresh ideas for the opening of something you’re already working on, this workshop will give you a variety of tools you can use.
