The Sizzling, Scintillating Synopsis
You’re in need of a synopsis. I can hear the moans and groans echo through cyberspace.
But do not fear.
This class is here to help you . . .
* give your synopsis the attention it deserves.
* learn what to include and what to avoid in a synopsis.
* create a synopsis showcasing your best writing.
* add the intriguing emotional twists of your novel to the synopsis.
* fill your synopsis with your unique writer’s voice.
* give clarity, succinctness, and pizazz to your synopsis.
The goal of this class through lessons, assignments, and plenty of feedback is for you to come away with a sizzling, scintillating synopsis. A synopsis that will get the attention of an agent, editor, contest judge and prove you’re a professional and talented story teller.
No more moaning.
Learn how to create a stellar synopsis.
The BUZZ from The Sizzling, Scintillating Synopsis Grads:
Suzanne helped me break down the synopsis into easily digestible parts, which prevents the overwhelm that so often accompanies writing one. Even just reading the forum responses and watching how she tightens language to achieve maximum impact, has been a godsend. I’ve waited for this course from Margie’s site for over a year, and it was well worth the wait.
Great support, advice re tightening, adding voice and power and emotion. No one likes writing synopses but this class made it not only manageable but fun.
The lessons gave us a step by step blueprint, and the amazing help and personalized instruction made a seeming impossible task doable.
Writing a synopsis can feel overwhelming, but this class transforms a daunting class into a step-by-step highlight of the plot and character growth.
Awesome class. Suzanne is an excellent teacher and guide, very patient, very supportive and always spot-on with her suggestions.
I now have two kick-A synopses (a longer and a shorter one) which make me super-happy.
