First Page Fiction Workshop is a feedback-oriented workshop that focuses on discussing the first pages of stories and novels that the participants share with the group. Participants can send the first page by email to the presenter in advance, or they can send it on the day of the workshop. Workshops begin by first discussing the first pages of published stories and novels and why they work or don't work. In the end, what we can learn from them.
