When a reader picks a book off a shelf, they flip the pages right to your first sentence. It’s the hook of the book; it seduces your readers into the world you’ve created, and opens the doors into the depth of your characters. How many first sentences still longer in your mind after you finish reading a book? How did the greats do it? In this interactive workshop, Ramadan will look into what makes some of the most iconic first sentences stand out, and help you navigate writing your own.
This workshop is a mix of lecture, discussion and Q&A. It’s open to writers of all levels.
