"Getting Your Synopsis Ready for Competitions, Editors, and Agents" ONLINE with Richard Santos

Don’t let the dreaded synopsis defeat you. Come learn the key features and common mistakes for your fiction synopsis.

At some point, every writer will need to write a synopsis of their completed book. But too often we put off writing these until the last minute. As a result, synopses often share common weaknesses. This class will explore the standard features of the synopsis, the most common mistakes synopsis writers make, and how a weak synopsis might reflect deeper structural concerns in your manuscript. Any synopses submitted ahead of time will receive an additional edit by the instructor.
