View Full Version : Synopsis Creativity

Ok, I have a question.

Would it be too unprofessional to send a synopsis written in first person like the novel? As in the character is giving the "brief". Just curious.

Yes, sorry. Every agent I've ever seen mention it says very clearly they don't want creativity or gimmicks in queries or synopses.

It's just that each time a writer has a bright idea like this they think it's new and creative and it's always something an agent sees over and over...
Look at back flap copy. Lots of them.

Well, this is why I asked rather than sending it ;)
Thanks guys
