Your First Page: First Pages and What They Tell Us about the Pages That Follow Them - Revised Workshop and Classroom Edition

Author(s): Peter Selgin

Writing & Publishing

Your First Pageis unlike any other craft book on writing. It is based on the premise that practically everything that can go right or wrong in a work of fiction or memoir goes wrong or right on the first page. Those first 300 or so words function like canaries in coal mines, forecasting success or predicting trouble. They establish the crucial bond between writer and reader, setting them off together on a path toward the heart or climax of a story--or they fail to do so. From first pages we stand to learn most of what we need to know to succeed as authors.

This new workshop and classroom edition of Your First Pagehas been revised to better fit the needs of creative writing classrooms and workshops.
