Time to Make Your Synopsis Sizzle

Class runs June 4th - 30th 2017

You’re in need of a synopsis. I can hear the moans and groans echo through cyberspace.
But do not fear.
This class is here to help you . . .
  •  give your synopsis the attention it deserves.
  • learn what to include and what to avoid in a synopsis. 
  • create a synopsis showcasing your best writing. 
  • add the intriguing emotional twists of your novel to the synopsis.
  • fill your synopsis with your unique writer’s voice.
  • give clarity, succinctness, and pizazz to your synopsis.
The goal of this class through lessons, assignments, and plenty of feedback is for you to come away with a sizzling, scintillating synopsis. A synopsis that will get the attention of an agent, editor, contest judge and prove you’re a professional and talented story teller.

No more moaning.
