Masters workshops are half-day, full-day, two-day, and/or on-going  intensive sessions with veteran educators, literary agents, industry experts, and best-selling authors. Locations and tuition fees vary. Classes are limited in size, so you get the maximum benefit. These workshops are a terrific opportunity for writers of novels and short stories  -- both fiction and nonfiction--and/or screenplays to take your writing to the next level and increase the chances for success.

This LIVE webinar will discuss the importance of the book synopsis as a tool to present your books to potential agents and editors. Learn the secrets to success from a professional on the inside in this LIVE VIRTUAL Event. Get all your questions answered!
