As special as your writing project is to you, it will fight for attention with all the other manuscripts that pile up in the inboxes of publishing professionals. That's why those first twenty pages matter so much. In this workshop, we'll look at the key elements that can make your manuscript stand out, and signal that the rest of your novel is packed with promise and punch. 

Christina Clancy's debut novel, The Second Home, was released June 2, by St. Martin's Press. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, in The Sun Magazine, and elsewhere. She has a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Her second novel, Shoulder Season, was published summer 2021.
