Summing up Your Story


In this first School of Writing podcast your host, Barry Hutchison, provides a simple, single-sentence template you can use to sum up your story which can then be used to pitch to agents, editors, producers. It’s also a great way of defining the story before you start writing, ensuring you have all the elements you need to make your story a success.

Barry also answers a writing related question on what to do if you have an idea for a novel or screenplay but don’t believe you have the writing skills to actually write it, and talks briefly about his upcoming ‘Pitch to Published’ course, which will take writers through the process of plotting, writing, editing and publishing a short story or novella on Amazon Kindle in just seven days.

I hope you enjoy this first ever School of Writing podcast. Please subscribe via iTunes or your usual podcast app and get in touch if there’s something you’d like me to discuss.
