    Sisters in Crime North Dallas

    "Seven Deadly First Page Sins" with Tex Thompson

    There's no one right way to begin your story — but there are plenty of wrong ones. In this class, we'll take you on a cautionary tour through the pits of page-one hell, complete with agent pet peeves, reader turn-offs, and "thanks but no thanks" editorial dealbreakers. Don't let your manuscript suffer in form-rejection torment: let us guide you through the slush-pile inferno and lead your story toward the light!

    Meeting is held in the McCallum Room (4th Floor) of the Frisco Public Library. Visitors are welcome. For more information, visit Sisters in Crime North Dallas.
