Starting With A Bang: How to Impress an Editor from Page One

Wed, 24 Jan, 2018 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Like it or not, your literary work is often judged based on first impressions. Join workshop leaders from three literary magazines for a hands-on session to ensure success for your short stories and essay submissions. For this class, writers will submit the opening page from one of their stories or essays to share with two editors and a publisher of Potomac Review, Delmarva Review, and Little Patuxent Review. The three will present best practices, strategies, and editorial insights into the all-important first paragraphs of short stories and essays as well as provide instant feedback to all participants. This session is a chance to get inside –not one—but three heads, and learn what sort of openings make them want to read on. The workshop leaders will also discuss submission best practices, including cover letters, record-keeping, literary good citizenship, and a pre-submission checklist. Writers will be contacted and asked to submit their opening a week before class begins.
