“Starting and Ending Stories with a Bang” 

Writers often agonize over the middle of the novel, so much so that they sometimes forget to focus on the bookends of the story. The beginning of the narrative sets up a promise to the reader and the ending is meant to fulfill it. This workshop will provide you with the tools to grab the reader with that opening and leave them satisfied with the finale. (2-1/2 hours)

Costs are $65 for Members / $75 for Non-Members.

 

About Agent Linda Camacho: 

Linda was always a fan of escaping into a good book, so the fact that she gets to make it her career is still surreal. She graduated from Cornell with a B.S. in Communication and has seen many sides of the industry. She’s held various positions at Penguin Random House, Dorchester, Simon and Schuster, Writers House, and Prospect Agency. She’s done everything from foreign rights to editorial to marketing to operations, so it was amazing to see how all the departments worked together to bring books to life. Somewhere in between all that (and little sleep), Linda received her MFA in creative writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Now at Gallt & Zacker Literary Agency, Linda continues to work with colleagues and clients who inspire her every day in both the children’s and adult categories. Linda is looking for MG, YA, and adult fiction across all genres (especially upmarket, women’s fiction/romance, and literary horror); she’s also seeking select picture book and graphic novel writer-illustrators.
