Join author Lewis Robinson for "How to Open a Story". In this Night Owl workshop, we’ll consider what makes a good first sentence, first paragraph, and first page. How do we best invite a reader into the heart of the story? What promises are made in the early goings? We’ll read and discuss many fine fictional openings, and practice a few of our own.
