Feel daunted about writing the first ten pages of your novel? Come to this workshop. We’ll discuss the strategies of writing these pages, the types of beginnings in different novels, and the major elements in writing these pages. You’ll learn what approach fits your narrative style and have a better chance to fully engage your readers from the very beginning.

Weina Dai Randel is the debut author of two critically acclaimed historical novels The Moon In The Palace and The Empress of Bright Moon, stories of Empress Wu, the first and only female ruler in China. Weina was born and raised in China. She came to the U.S. when she was 24, and English is her second language. She has worked as a journalist, a magazine editor, and an adjunct professor.
