I have a new writer’s workshop starting in June. It came at the suggestion of one of my previous workshop students and I’ve been working on it for the last few months. The new workshop is QUERY LETTERS, SYNOPSIS WRITING AND PITCHING. The workshop would explore the following:
- Crafting a query letter directed at agents and publishers and how to perform a coordinated agent/publisher search.
- Writing synopses. Yes, I said “synopses.” Multiple synopses are needed for book title because you’ll need a 200-word synopsis, 1-page synopsis, 2-page synopsis and a 4-page synopsis. There’s no such thing as a standard synopsis length…sadly.
- There are plenty of opportunities to pitch face-to-face with industry professionals—both formally and informally—so it pays to have your elevator pitch in your back pocket ready to pull out at a moment’s notice.
So if you want to learn how to interact with the industry and present your story concept effectively, you can sign up here:
