I am researching agents and requirements as I prepare to submit my novel. Several times I have come across the following line regarding synopsis "Please submit a short synopsis."
Is a short synopsis 250 words or less, 500 or less, 1000 or less or simply 2 pages instead of 3? Any clarification on this would be appreciated.
A short synopsis is two words.
oh wait, that's just MY preference.
Two or three pages, 1000 words or less.
Some people submit tomes that are just an index of events. "Short" is more like a prayer that you don't have more synopsis pages than sample pages in your query.
