When you say "synopsis," a collective groan comes up from the writing community. And we hear, "Do I have to?", "Writing a synopsis, I feel like I've already written the book." All valid. All fixable. A necessity in today's market, a synopsis can be a daunting task, but it can also be one of a writer's best tools.
Mystery and contemporary romance author SANDY STEEN will help you learn how to break down writing a synopsis into an easy format useful for plotting and keeping your story on track. In the end, you'll be saying, "Not as bad as I thought," and "I got this."

WHAT ABOUT QUERYING AGENTS? HOW WILL THIS SESSION HELP?

Writing a query for literary agents and pitching your work can be even more frustrating than writing a synopsis since querying requires an even more condensed overview of a body of work. You must be persuasive and pique the agent's curiosity. Understanding the importance of a synopsis and mastering how to write one will aid you in presenting your work.

Your goal is to stand out, isn't it? Begin by understanding the synopsis, query process work, and what writing industry decision-makers want to see. As a bonus, you will get a few tips, a worksheet, and resources to help you when you are ready to begin querying.
