Synopsis Workshop

Whether you're submitting to an agent or a publishing house, you need a great synopsis.  You may want one to serve as a "map" as you write your story. Even if you're a "pantser," you'll need one at the end to help formulate your "elevator speech" or send with a query.

Bring a three-page, double-spaced, at least 12-point type synopsis of your work—past, present, or future concept—to the November meeting of Mystery Writers and get valuable feedback from your fellow writers.

The Dallas MWASW group meets the first Saturday of each month (except January) at Olive Garden, 4240 Belt Line, Addison, TX, 75001. Meeting time is 10 AM-noon, followed by lunch. There is a $10 fee (cash only—please bring fives or ones) for the program and drinks-only attendees. The fee is reduced to $5 (cash only) for those staying for lunch. All who attend are encouraged to remain and break bread(sticks) with your fellow writers. Contact info: Check the group's web site for more information.
