Your First Ten Pages

As many writers know, agents and editors won’t give your work more than ten pages or so to make an impact. If you haven’t got them hooked by then, it’s a safe bet you won’t be asked for more material. Make sure you’ve got the kind of opening they’re looking for! In this fun, informative session, author and literary agent Paula Munier breaks down the story elements that need to appear in your first ten pages. You’ll learn what keeps an agent reading, what are the most common mistakes that make them stop, and the steps you need to take to correct them. This is invaluable information from a proven agent – don’t miss out!
