The first chapter of any book is the most important. If you have failed to hook your reader in the opening lines, they are unlikely to read on. Spend a day honing your first chapter with bestselling and award-winning author Kate Forsyth.
The morning will be spent discussing what makes a powerful, suspenseful and attention-grabbing first chapter. The afternoon will be spent re-writing and editing your own work with Kate's guidance. Each participant will receive 10 minutes one-on-one time with Kate, and tea and coffee will be provided.
