Ground Your Readers From Page One

2021 September | Craft

WHEN: September 1, 2021 – September 30, 2021 via GroupsIO

Course Description:

Grounding your readers instantly, from page one and on, is necessary to making sure your readers are invested from the start. It’s easy to forget to include details that keep your readers locked into the story. 

This applies to establishing where we are, when we are, who we are with, and why. And guess what? You have to do this at the start of every new scene and chapter in your book. 

Writing multiple POVs? Then you’ll want to apply the methods from this workshop more than ever to make sure you readers know who they are following in this story. Use tips from developmental editor and book coach, Katie McCoach, to ground your readers and keep them invested from page one!
