Free Fall Friday

Yesterday, I put up the information about Anita Nolan and the novel workshop she is planning to do on  first pages at the November 5th Free Craft Day.  I did not make that clear enough in my post.  Oh, it is there now, but for those people who read it early in the day, please realize she only is excepting first pages from writers attending her novel workshop.

Also, I made a mistake with the deadline for the next first page writing prompt.  The deadline for the prompt is October 14th. 

Here is the current prompt:

____scanned the crowd through….

You should try to weave in some type of atmospheric quality or event.

Results posted on October 14th.

Please attach your double spaced, 12 point font, 23 line first page to an e-mail and send it to kathy(dot)temean(at)gmail(dot)com.  Also cut and paste it into the body of the e-mail. Put “October 14th First Page Prompt” in the subject line.

Felicia Sanzari Chernesky will be critiquing the entries.  She is a poet, writer, and editor. The managing editor of Academic Questions, a quarterly journal that examines higher education issues, Felicia is halfway through a master’s degree in creative writing in poetry with an emphasis in formal verse. Over the years she’s done all kinds of writing and editing—from authoring a recipe column for a small-town newspaper to copyediting a philosophy manuscript on possibility, necessity, and existence published by a large university press.

Felicia writes children’s poetry, picture books, middle grade, and YA—and loves every minute of it. She also does freelance critiques and copyediting for children’s writers and poets—and loves every minute of that, too. Felicia is represented by Susan Hawk of The Bent Agency.

I will post the top four results and share Felicia’s thoughts with you on Friday, October 21st.

Felicia was one of the authors on the faculty at the Summer’s Conference.  She received many kudos from the writers who she critiqued.  You will be happy to know she will be on the faculty again this year and helping you improve your writing.

Talk tomorrow,
