By Jane Friedman & Alice Pope

Agents and editors agree: Improper story beginnings are the single biggest barrier to publication. Why? If you have a bad beginning, no one will keep reading. Does your manuscript grab a reader's attention at page one and never let them go? Find out in this webinar.

  • Avoid beginner mistakes that doom a manuscript from the first page.

Quick Overview

Today's pick is from Brian Klems...

Fair or not, editors and agents will give up on your manuscript if it doesn't hook their attention in the first few pages. Writer's Digest editorial director Jane Friedman will clue you in on how to buy your manuscript more time by making sure your first chapter is a must-read. Plus—and this is why I love this webinar—you get a checklist for self-editing and revision, which will help you catch small missteps that could cost you big.
