Please join us April 18th for

Melissa Cutler

Dr. Strangelove: or, How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love Writing Synopses

The only thing harder than writing a novel just might be creating its accompanying synopsis for submission to agents or editors. Melissa Cutler should know because she received more than 140 rejections from agents and editors before selling thirteen manuscripts over the course of three years to a variety of publishers, including Penguin, St. Martin’s Press, Harlequin, and Kensington Books. Along the way, she’s learned the secret to writing a synopsis that sells.

In this interactive workshop, Melissa will share her synopsis secrets and walk participants through the process of writing their own synopses of varying lengths so their submission package will stand out from the slush pile. This workshop also has a lot to offer self-published authors, who might be surprised to learn that the secret to Melissa’s synopsis success is exactly the same as her plotting secret and back cover blurb secret. You won’t want to miss this one!
