“You fail only if you stop writing.”   —Ray Bradbury

Wednesday, May 2nd: Loglines, hooks & elevator pitches

 

Join us Wednesday, May 2nd at 7:00 p.m. at the Carrollwood Barnes and Noble

Do you have an irresistibly gripping logline for your novel?

Does it seem impossible to describe your novel in one sentence when you have so many amazing characters, conflicts, subplots, themes, and surprises?

TWA can help! Join us to discover the key to writing a logline that leaves agents begging for more.

If you have a hook or a logline you’d like to read aloud for a critique, please bring it with you.

Guidelines:

In one to three sentences, a total of forty words or less, please tell us:

• Where does your story take place
• Who is your character
• What does your character want
• Who or what stands in the way
• What happens if he or she doesn’t get it

Example:

In the university’s basement, PhD candidate Amy Smith discovers the vials she’s been labeling contain a deadly virus. She wants to tell authorities, but her professor locks her in the lab. If she cannot escape, everyone in Boston will die.
Don’t worry if this seems difficult or confusing. During our meeting, we will demonstrate how to summarize an entire novel in less than three sentences.
