In what makes her third musical recommendation since she started the podcast, JJ recommends Deaf West’s production/Broadway revival of Spring AwakeningThe cast performed “Touch Me” on Late Night with Seth Meyers, so please watch and tell me this isn’t the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen.

    Ooh, I’m excited for this podcast! Also, I’m proud to say I’ve read almost of these books. Great minds think alike?

    P.S. Could y’all make a podcast on how to write a synopsis? An agent to whom I just sent in my full for considerstion asked for one and I’ve written it, but I’m not entirely sure how to fix it. (I AM NOT TRAINED TO WRITE A PAGE ABOUT 400 PAGES OF MY BOOK. I wouldn’t have written the other 399 if I had. Ahem. Well, it’s true.)

    Thank you, you wonderful people you, and pardon the screaming.

      We can certainly do a podcast about synopses and partials on submission! In the mean time, our alumna Sooz wrote up a cheat-seat on writing a 1-page synopsis! 🙂

        I saw that and that’s how I actually wrote the first draft of my synopsis! It really helped.
