      CREATE A PAGE TURNER WITH WILLIAMAYE JONES

      The beginning of a novel can hook your readers, but chapter endings are just as important if not more so—once you’ve engaged a reader you want to keep them hooked until the last page. Authors use numerous devices to make readers turn the page. This workshop will focus on how to write captivating chapter endings that achieve suspense and mystery in a subtle way, avoid clichés and stereotypes, and push the novel forward. We will explore various fiction genres to discover tools we can use to craft our own chapter endings that create a sense of urgency in readers and engender questions. We will also look at endings that fall flat. As an add on, students may purchase an individual 30-minute coaching session with the instructor, to take place following the workshop (four spaces available).  If you prefer to register by check, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806, and include your email address. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting.  About the Instructor: In her nearly twenty years as a freelance editor for publishing powerhouses such as Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, Random House, and Sterling Publishing, Williamaye Jones has worked on over 1200 books, both fiction and non-fiction, from concept to conception. She received a BA in Literature from UNC-Asheville and an MFA in Creative Writing from Spalding University. She is now launching her boutique publishing company, Lioness Press, in Hendersonville, NC.
