Webinar: Sizzling Synopses with MJ Moores
August 13, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
How on earth do you take 50K+ words and boil them down to 1 measly little page? The formula’s simple, the practice is grueling but we’ll get your reduction simmering nicely.
MJ Moores will walk you through the recipe of your book. You bring the ingredients to the party and she’ll take you step-by-step through the process from identifying the most pertinent information down to choosing the words with the biggest impact.
Learn why agents and publishers ask for these crazy summations, how they differ from your query letter synopsis/blurb, and why it’s important to be a word chef.
Be prepared to work on your synopsis, share, and get group feedback in this 2hr hands-on workshop.
Workshop will be via Webex, Thursday, August 13, 2020 from 7:00 to 9:00pm. Tickets are free, but space is limited. Pre-registration ends August 11, 2020. Please register below.
