Writ­ers hear ed­i­tor’s view

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - PROFILES -

Denise Roy, an ed­i­tor for­merly with Si­mon & Schus­ter and Pen­guin Ran­dom House, leads a dis­cus­sion at the Vil­lage Writ­ing School on top­ics of in­ter­est to writ­ers at 6:30 p.m. Thurs­day at the Cen­ter for Non­prof­its at 1200 W. Wal­nut St. in Rogers. Roy will dis­cuss the one-page synopsis. Par­tic­i­pants in this work­shop are in­vited to sub­mit a synopsis for re­view on Sept. 7.

The one-page synopsis is an im­por­tant tool used by agents and ed­i­tors to eval­u­ate a man­u­script. It is of­ten at­tached to the query let­ter. A well-writ­ten synopsis can make or break a book’s chance to be read by an agent or pub­lisher.

The ses­sions are open to the pub­lic and the cost for each month’s work­shop is $15.
