Let Me Critique Your Synopsis: Webinar This Thursday, July 8

Those pesky synopses for novels and memoirs are very tricky to do. Questions abound. How long should they be? Which characters should you mention? Should you have plenty of detail or just sparse mentions? If these questions are crossing your mind, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m teaching a webinar this Thursday, July 8, called “Critique Series: Novel Synopses” where you can get your synopsis critiqued!





The webinar happens at 1 p.m., EST, Thursday, July 8, 2010, and lasts for 75 minutes. Sign up here.


All registered attendees are invited to submit a 1-page synopsis for critique. Every writer who registers is guaranteed one critique. The page can be single-spaced or you can submit two pages double-spaced (which adds up to the same length). If you don’t want your synopsis shared, say so and I will not share it.

4 Reasons to Attend

  1. Plenty of agents are still requesting synopses with their queries, and you have to be ready to submit whatever an agent asks for.
  2. Synopses used to be quite lengthy (and therefore easier to do), but nowadays agents want them short and sweet. I’ll show you some basic tricks to cut down length.
  3. With the critique, you’ll get another opinion on your writing and the layout and structure of your story. 
  4. You can ask questions in real time. If you have questions specific to you, we’ll address them live!


Who should attend? Writers of novels, kids novels and memoir. If you’re writing any of those categories, you will need a synopsis to submit to agents. Sign up for the webinar here!
