Seven Deadly First Page Sins

There's no one right way to begin your story, but there are plenty of wrong ones! In this class, we'll take you on a cautionary tour through the pits of page-one hell, complete with agent pet peeves, reader turn-offs, and "thanks but no thanks" editorial deal-breakers. Don't let your manuscript suffer in form-rejection torment: let veteran editor Laura Maisano guide you through the slush-pile inferno and lead your story toward the light!
