WS 30: Caleb Warnock 3 first page critique part 2

This is our last interview with Caleb Warnock and again we hear Caleb’s eagle eye for critiquing first pages. Ava, and Alice go next (Lillian was sick this night and feels bad she missed out on the harsh critiques) Ava and Caleb have an interesting discussion on using a youths voice in an adult novel- and how not to make it a middle grade book. Caleb goes right for Alice’s first line and calls it boring. Find out why…

Thanks for coming on the podcast, Caleb. We look forward to a rematch (bring your first page next time, lol)

WS Ep 29: Caleb Warnock 2 first page critique part 1

Okay people, here is your chance to see what Caleb can do to a first page. Each of the Writing Snippets Crew who attended this podcast brought their first page of one of their novels. Today we get to hear about Lauren’s and Nichole’s. We learned a lot and I know you will too. Especially the parts about choreography and emotion. Also, for those of you writing YA, Caleb explains the trend that is so in force right now that you would have a hard time getting published unless you follow it. By the way, how is your narrative voice?
