Writing Synopses

By Anastasia McTague Lots of young writers have had to tangle, at some point or another, with the terrible synopsis—a means of distilling the entirety of a story into a few intriguing sentences that quickly and easily explain the plot. If you haven’t yet had to write a synopsis, you’ll likely need to do so in the future. Due to the size of many stories, condensing them into a few catchy lines is often frustrating.

As Light Cascaded

By Emma Travis The fabric was blank. The void, so still, so silent, Just You, You in Your beauty. Threads of quiet universe Hushed, waiting.
