May 2017: Synopsis and Blurb Writing for Today’s Hybrid Author
INSTRUCTOR: Pam McCutcheon
DATES: May 1 – 28 (4 weeks)
COST: $25 (LARA members: $20)

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Most writers hate writing synopses and no wonder. After you’ve agonized over several hundred pages to make your prose perfect, how could you possibly distill that down to a measly ten or twenty pages? Or, worse yet, one or two paragraphs for a back cover blurb? By the time you’ve written a book, everything seems important, and it’s difficult to know what to put in and what to leave out. To help with that problem, Pam McCutcheon came up with a method that she details in her book, Writing the Fiction Synopsis, A Step by Step Approach. She’ll share her process to help you put together a selling synopsis and/or write a back cover blurb.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Pam McCutcheon is the author of romance novels and how-to books for writers under her own name, and the Demon Underground YA urban fantasy series under the name Parker Blue. Pam’s latest releases are updated e-book versions of her popular Writing the Fiction Synopsis and The Writer’s Brainstorming Kit (with Michael Waite) as well as self-published e-book versions of her romance backlist and fantasy short stories. Pam/Parker now works full-time as a writer, editor, speaker, and as the “Parker” half of Parker Hayden Media, an assisted self-publishing business. She can be found on the ’net at pammc.com or parkerblue.net.

Registration Deadline: May 1, 2017

THE BASICS:

Los Angeles Romance Writers online classes are scheduled a few times per year.

Courses are run on a Yahoo! group forum and feature various themes. Online classes are conducted via email/forum only, with no real-time or live chats.

Participants will be added to the forum for the period of the workshop and then removed after the class has been completed. Workshops are open to anyone with email access (not just LARA or RWA® members). However, LARA members are eligible for reduced rates.
