A GREAT Opportunity!

I'm set to teach this class for the Yosemite Romance Writers.  It starts on Monday.  At the moment, we have a very small class so if you or anyone you know is interested in dissecting book openings, please join us!

Killer Openings
Instructor: Alexa Bourne
Dates: April 4-29, 2011
Many people browse through a book store, pull a book off the shelf and read the first page. They decide right then, based on the 1st line, 1st paragraphs and 1st page, whether or not they’ll buy the book. Killer Openings dissects those all-important elements. Students study good and bad openings and discuss why they do or don’t work.  They can also submit their own opening lines/paragraphs/pages and receive a critique. 

Alexa Bourne has finaled in or won 21 RWA contests with 7 manuscripts.  (Most of those contests focused on the 1st few pages or the 1st chapter.)  She has a Bachelor’s in English Literature and a Master’s in Education.
