An epic contest!

The Micro Synopsis...

Can you write a synopsis for your MG or YA book (beginning, middle, and end) in THREE sentences? I tried it. It was hard. You can try it, too.

Enter in the comments HERE.

P.S. WriteOnCon, my favorite online conference in THE WORLD is starting in ten days. TEN days.

p.p.s. I'm now fairly certain the SHIFT key works. Good luck in the micro synopsis contest, my friends!

p.p.p.s. I'm over at Operation Awesome today talking about EPIPHANY!


  1. Can I do two sentences? I'll go take a look.

  2. They specifically said it's not meant to be a pitch, but an actual synopsis, so I think the 3 sentences is pretty important. Good luck, Matt!

  3. Good luck on the contest, Katrina! I think I'm going to pass on this one, but it's a really cool idea!

  4. Thanks for the tip! And wow, that was hard. :)

  5. Janet, I just skipped over there and read your micro synopsis. Awesome!!! I always loved your one-line pitch, but those details make me even more sure it's gotta be a great book!

  6. Let me second Katrina. Your micro synopsis is awesome! Good luck, and even if it doesn't find you in this contest, you've got something there. Something really good.


Speak up! You will be heard...or read.
