FREE | Pen to Print: Synopsis Workshop with Barbara Nadel

June 14, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


Synopsis Workshops for budding authors, ideal for people wanting to submit their novel into The Book Challenge Competition.

About this event

Barbara Nadel will cover the mechanics of how to write a synopsis of your book for presentation to an agent, publisher or competition. This will include how to tease out the main points of a plot, what to write and what not to write, how much and what detail to include.

At the end of the session, participants should understand how to express their ideas succinctly, how to pare down their text and write powerful synopsis of their book.

She received the Crime Writers’ Association Silver Dagger for her novel Deadly Web, part of her series featuring Inspector Ikmen (dubbed the Turkish Morse). Barbara has published more than thirty novels.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
