You have finished your story, but what comes next? When you approach literary agents, you will need to present them with a submission package that includes a query letter, a sample of your manuscript and, of course, a synopsis. The synopsis will need to look professional and to fulfil its vital purpose of convincing an agent that your story sounds exciting.
However, it is a truth universally acknowledged that no author enjoys writing a synopsis for their book. What should go into it? How long should it be? What is it for? With practical advice, a question and answer session and workshop, The Synopsis Surgery aims to answer these questions and help authors get to the heart of the matter: what their book is really about.
Join leading literary agent, Oliver Munson for this lecture and workshop, where you will work with peers to create a synopsis and have your chance to ask questions during a Q & A session.
