Opening scenes introduce your protagonist, her/his world, their goals, the stakes, and your story's themes. It's no wonder that an opening scene is often the most difficult to write! This workshop will look at a variety of approaches, with examples from classic, literary/commercial fiction, memoir. Writing prompts will be used to help you create depth and tension in your opening scene.
