What is a “high concept” book? How is high concept different from a
trope? Most agents and editors won’t take on a project unless they can
clearly see how to market it. A well-honed concept and deliberate use of
tropes will give you an advantage from submitting to selling. We’ll
discuss how to develop an idea into a story that will sell.
This class is lecture and slide based. Bring your story idea and get
feedback on how to develop it into something that will appeal to editors
and readers alike.
