There’s tremendous pressure on writers to nail the opening of a story. Whether it’s to catch the eye of an agent, editor, or reader, those first chapters need to be perfect.
And that’s why the writer who wins today’s prize is so INCREDIBLY lucky!
Sara Letourneau is the managing editor and writing coach at Heart of the Story Editorial & Coaching Services. She works with writers to help them tell compelling and well-crafted stories, finish (or get started on) their projects, and develop greater trust in their creativity so they can achieve their writing and publishing goals. In addition, she’s a published poet, a columnist at DIY MFA, and a former Resident Writing Coach at Writers Helping Writers. You might also recognize Sara as the guest editor for some of WHW’s popular Critiques 4 U contests earlier this year.
Sara will assess the first three chapters of the winner’s manuscript (up to 8,000 words). She will then provide a brief report with big-picture feedback on the plot, opening hook, characters, genre, and more. The winner will have until December 31, 2020, to redeem this prize.
