From the Reading Chair


This workshop explores how elements such as theme, plotlines, point of view, backstory and voice work together to create the story design and determine the relationship between the reader and the story.
Most writers find writing a 500 word synopsis almost as daunting as producing an 80,000 word manuscript. But there is no way around it. If you want your work considered by a publisher, agent, commissioning editor, mentoring program or grants body, you need a synopsis. And if you are planning on self-publishing, you still need to be able to encapsulate your story in a way that entices readers.
Have you got a finished manuscript? Are you bogged down in the revision process? Are you resisting approaching the next draft because it all feels too hard and you don’t know how to go about it?
