The Seven Deadly First-Page Sins

March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

There’s no one right way to begin your story – but there are plenty of wrong ones.

In this class, we’ll take you on a cautionary tour through the pits of page-one hell, complete with agent pet peeves, reader turn-offs, and “thanks but no thanks” editorial dealbreakers.

Don’t let your manuscript suffer in form-rejection torment: let us guide you through the slush-pile inferno and lead your story toward the light!

About the Speaker:
Arianne “Tex” Thompson is a licensed locksmith, egregiously enthusiastic editor, and professional ruckus-raiser. She is the author of Children of the Drought, an internationally-published epic fantasy Western series from Solaris, and ‘chief instigator’ of WORD – Writers Organizations ‘Round Dallas. Now she’s blazing a trail through conferences, workshops, and conventions alike – as an endlessly energetic, catastrophically cheerful one-woman stampede. Find her online at thetexfiles.com and wordwriters.org!
