Join fellow writers in an intimate, four-week long intensive as accomplished author and teacher Sarah Aronson walks through the complex process of refining a manuscript!

The First Big Step is a workshop for MG and YA novelists who have completed a rough draft. In this class, Sarah’s mission is to help you discover where your novel is working and where you need to dig deeper.

Her lectures will approach topics like theme, voice, the role of secondary characters and subplot, as well as the magic that comes from understanding backstory. Exercises and weekly assignments will be offered and you will have the option to meet on-line with a small group of fellow participants for round-table discussions of your work and weekly assignments.

Participate in a one-hour on-line first pages session with editor Holly West (Feiwal & Friends).  

Participants will receive: 

  • * Four  one- hour-long classes with an accomplished author 
  • * Weekly assignments and exercises designed to help you polish your work
  • * Weekly Peer to Peer online discussion session 
  • * A written professional critique by your instructor using the SCBWI Gold Form
  • * At the completion of the program you will participate in an online First Page with an editor 
  • * Submission Guidelines will be available at the end of the program
