      The First 30 Pages: 6-Week Workshop for Novels, Memoirs & Nonfiction Books

      The beginning pages of a book manuscript are crucial to impressing agents, editors, contest judges and readers, and making them want to read more. In this six-week workshop, you'll learn how to refine and prepare the first 30-50 pages of your manuscript so they are ready for submissions to agents and publications. The first four weeks together, we will focus on specific elements of craft in the opening of your novel, memoir or nonfiction book, to make sure they are polished: theme, character, conflict, and structure/pace. The last two weeks we will help you select and prepare an excerpt for publication submissions, as well as write the agent query letter that will accompany your pages. Limited to 10 students. Must have a manuscript in progress. To register by check, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting. For more information, go to www.flatironwritersroom.com.  About the Instructor: Catherine Campbell is an award-nominated fiction writer and essayist. Her work appears or is forthcoming in The New York Times, The Millions, Kenyon Review, McSweeney’s, The Atlantic, Daily Muse, Arcadia, Drunken Boat, Ploughshares online, and elsewhere. She also ghostwrites articles for high-profile clients in national magazines such as Inc., Harvard Business Review, and Foundr Mag. Catherine earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and Writing at UNC-Asheville and her MFA in Writing at Queens University. She was born on a little homestead in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, and lives in Asheville with her son Thaddeus and her partner, the writer Brandon Amico. Refund policy: The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund. You may cancel your registration up until on week before the workshop, via Eventbrite, for a full refund. After that date, no refunds will be made.
