February Online Workshop: Loglines That Sell with Laura Drake

Join the RWA-WF Chapter for our February online workshop: Loglines That Sell with RITA Winner Laura Drake! The class is free for RWA-WF members, $15 for other RWA members, and $20 for nonmembers. Register at the link below, but act fast! Class size is limited to 25 people.


Writing an 80,000 word manuscript is the easy part. Distilling the story into a sentence or two? That's where the fiction author's job gets really tough. If you want to land an agent, sell your story to an editor, or gain readers' attention, you need a hook that will capture them and hold on tight. That's where the logline comes in.

Join RITA-winner and RWA-WF past president Laura Drake for this hands-on class to help you develop the logline or elevator pitch for your manuscript. Not only will Laura provide lessons on how to write a good hook, she'll also critique your logline so you can make it the best it can be. In this interactive forum, participants are also encouraged to provide constructive feedback on each others' work.
