"Do you mean to tell me I must summarize my 50,000 word novel in 250 words? That's impossible!" No, it's not impossible, it's a synopsis. Please join us at our next Bellingham Network Schmooze as we endeavor to help each other take the dread out of the dreaded synopsis.
What's a Schmooze, you say? A Schmooze is a gathering of children's writers and illustrators designed to share knowledge, great news, and companionship. They are free activities offered by the SCBWI WWA Bellingham Network. A Schmooze is a great place to meet local authors and illustrators - people like you who share your interests and goals. At a Schmooze, you'll have the chance to network, make friends, and get connected. Occasionally guest speakers will be featured at a Schmooze, but usually they are meetings that are structured around discussions about various topics of interest to children's writers and illustrators. A Schmooze is not a fix-it, nor is it a forum for critique, though critique groups can grow out of a Schmooze.
