IN PERSON Writer Training Session: Write a Synopsis
This 3-hour in-person workshop will teach you in a practical way how to write a synopsis for submission to an agent, producer or competition.
Your tutor will be Olivia Chapman, from Writing West Midlands.
You’ll learn how to structure your synopsis, what to include and what to leave out, and how to pick out the most important parts of your story.
This workshop is intended for prose writers (both fiction and non-fiction) and scriptwriters.
In order to participate fully, you will need to have a complete story (in whatever form) which you can talk about from start to finish.
Although you do not need to be published to attend, you do need to have a complete manuscript as the synopsis will include the full story you have written.
The workshop will take place in person, at the Writing West Midlands offices at Zellig building, Custard Factory complex, Gibb Street, Birmingham.
Places will be limited to 10.
The space is large, and will be well ventilated.
An online alternative to this in-person workshop is also available. Please book that online version if you would feel more comfortable. See all courses available at: https://writingwestmidlands.org/upcoming-events/
