Breakout session: Getting Stuck In - Editing narrative options

Getting Stuck In: Editing narrative openings (Breakout session 14.45 to 15.45)

Eleanor Collis, Floris Books

This workshop is open to editors working directly with fiction or non-fiction narrative. It will be a loosely structured discussion and sharing of experience. What options do we have when the opening chapters of a manuscript are not working? How can we help authors draw readers in? Structurally? Through voice? Together we will develop a list of questions to keep in mind when editing the initial part of a narrative.
