On August 21, from 1:00–5:00, in conjunction with Killer Nashville at the Omni Nashville (room TBD). Four SinC experts—Laura DiSilverio, Catriona McPherson, Cathy Pickens, and Hank Phillippi Ryan—multi-published authors with combined decades of writing, publishing and teaching experience, will analyze effective opening paragraphs from crime fiction novels to see what makes them awe inspiring and helps them snare the reader. There are techniques you can learn and emulate!

Then, we’ll critique your anonymously submitted first paragraphs, offering key suggestions for making them more compelling and virtually un-put-downable. We’ll lay out specific strategies for beginning a series that will have “legs” that will have room to grow and expand to six, ten, or 26 books. Finally, we’ll put it all on the table and discuss “Our Beginnings,” the varied ways we got our start in this biz, and answer (with complete candor!) any questions you might have.

Additionally, four names will be drawn at random during the afternoon and the winners will have their first three chapters critiqued by the instructors.

The cost is only $55 for Sisters in Crime members, and $160 for non-members.

You can register for the workshop on the Killer Nashville website even if you have already registered for the conference, because the event is available as an "add-on”.
