Multimedia Writing Toolkit:Helping Students Incorporate Graphics and Videos for Authentic Purposes, Grades 3-8 Sean Ruday
Fiction editors and agents get hundreds of queries a day. How do you stand out? How do you go from the slush pile to a contract? First, you need to understand that the fiction proposal package of query and synopsis isn´t about your novel. It´s about showing how well you know your target audience, either editor or agent, and how well you´re able to address his or her specific needs. A great query letter gets them to read your synopsis. A comprehensive, thoughtful synopsis then shows your next skill: Not only do you know what an editor or agent needs, you know how to identify and showcase a complete story arc with escalating conflict and clear GMC. A solid synopsis gets them to read your manuscript. Your manuscript will be what gets you the contract. But how do you write a great query letter and solid synopsis? By researching specific targets, and writing a focused query that incorporates pertinent details that show that you´ve done your homework. By writing a mini-synopsis for your novel that only hits what the target wants to know: Who is this story about, what are they doing, and why do I care? By writing a full synopsis, that shows you understand what drives a story, and that has all pertinent plot points. You also show that you know how to be succinct enough to focus on the plot points only, and leave any extraneous details out, not wasting your target´s time. This audiobook gives you specific instructions. In step-by-step detail, with simple templates, this audiobook shows you what you need to do to create a fiction proposal package of query letter and synopsis that will get you out of the slush pile - and gets your novel in the hands of agents and editors. 1.

Do you struggle to write every day? Many people dream of becoming a successful author, but can´t *find* the time to write. The truth is this: Great writers don´t have more time than you do. They make time to write. Not only do they make time, they also follow specific routines that help them avoid writer´s block altogether. By developing the ´´writing habit´´ you´ll have the confidence to sit down in front of a computer every day, knowing the words will come. Your Goal:: Write 2,000 Words a Day - Every Day!One of the key factors to effectively developing any habit is choosing a specific, measurable goal. So if you want to become a prolific writer, then you´ll need to choose a specific word count for each day. While I *suggest* 2,000 words as a goal, you can pick any number that fits in with your busy schedule. You might choose 500 or 1,000 words a day. Or, you might have more time than I do (or write faster than I do) and choose to write 3,000 or 10,000 words each day. The important thing is to establish a daily word count goal and then stick to it. In Writing Habit Mastery you´ll learn how to incorporate writing into your daily routine. What you´ll get is a strategy and list of tools that will help you develop a sustainable writing habit and demolish writer´s block. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Stone.

The author´s artful style of writing coupled with the colorful images he incorporates into the text makes for a thoughtful and emotionally charged listening experience.

Cinepoetry analyzes how French poets have remapped poetry through the lens of cinema for more than a century. In showing how poets have drawn on mass culture, technology, and material images to incorporate the idea, technique, and experience of cinema into writing, Wall-Romana documents the long history of cross-media concepts and practices often thought to emerge with the digital.In showing the cinematic consciousness of Mallarmé and Breton and calling for a reappraisal of the influential poetry theory of the early filmmaker Jean Epstein, Cinepoetry reevaluates the bases of literary modernism. The book also explores the crucial link between trauma and trans-medium experiments in the wake of two world wars and highlights the marginal identity of cinepoets who were often Jewish, gay, foreign-born, or on the margins.What results is a broad rethinking of the relationship between film and literature. The episteme of cinema, the book demonstates, reached the very core of its supposedly highbrow rival, while at the same time modern poetry cultivated the technocultural savvy that is found today in slams, e-poetry, and poetic-digital hybrids.
