Starting Next Week: The Last Page with Emily Schultz, Author of 'The Blondes'

Class, Emily Schultz, Stephen King, Writing

'Starting your novel' is well-covered territory in the realm of workshops. What about finishing?

How do you revive a stalled story?

How do you know when you're done?

How do you write the dreaded synopsis that so many agents and publishers ask for?

Welcome to The Last Page with Emily Schultz, starting next week. Emily is the author of the acclaimed novel The Blondes and co-founder of the literary journal Joyland. As a freelance editor she has edited over 200 books, from literary fiction to mobster biographies. Her writing has been profiled in the Los Angeles Times, EW, Washington Post, NPR Radio, and the Guardian.

And she's here to help you get over the finish line.

This four-week workshop is a mix of lectures and exercises that will help you move with confidence to the next step of your publishing journey. It's a mix of craft (like writing a bulletproof synopsis) and the business end (you will be Googled before you get read). 

In order to get the most out of this workshop, you should have a complete or partially-finished draft of a novel, and a working synopsis.

And with praise like this, you know you're in good hands. 

"Emily Schultz is my new hero." —Stephen King

“Reading The Blondes… Wow!” —Margaret Atwood
