    Lewis Robinson Night Owl
    Tuesday, 6:00PM to 9:00PM @ The Telling Room

    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.
