“Mastering Beginnings and Endings in Your Writing” Workshop with Kate Senecal

November 10, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

"Ann Hood once wrote that Beginnings "put into motion the events that will drive the story to its resolution. And the resolution is often the inverse of the opening. "

Come join Kate Senecal on Sunday, November 10 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Northampton Center for the Arts for this writing workshop. She'll investigate the connection between the beginnings and endings of works of fiction, discuss how to write opening and closing lines that draw the reader in and leave them satisfied. Kate will look at beginnings and endings with an eye toward finding connections and identifying how the language anchors the story. This class will include writing exercises, discussion, and short readings.

Free and open to the public - No pre-registration. We look forward to seeing you there! 

Kate Senecal received an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She is the Assistant Director of Pioneer Valley Writers' Workshop, and a workshop facilitator for Writers for Recovery in Vermont. Her fiction has been published in The Laurel ReviewThe Foundling Review, and in Storychord.com, where she was the fiction editor for two years.
