Summary of Week 1: Elevator Pitch & Short Synopsis

In Week 1: Elevator Pitch and Short Synopsis, we help you write the 1-2 paragraph story blurb, also know as the elevator pitch, that you can later use in a query letter.

Next we cover the 5-6 paragraph story synopsis that can form the basis of a synopsis agents and editors request.

We also touch on the story's theme and genre to help you have a better idea of the focus of your story and also your audience's expectations.

Once you've written your Elevator Pitch using the guidelines and template in this lesson, draft your Story Synopsis using an online "plug & play" tool we share in that section.
