Guidelines

This isn't the Style Guide, but pay close attention

The Content Guidelines serves as a document to help you orchestrate the creation of a brilliant synopsis.
While measuring the quality of writing is subjective, we believe there are certain tips you should follow to improve your synopsis' quality, conciseness, and readability.

Your synopsis...

Must NOT contain any plot-specific spoilers

Be careful with what you choose to reveal. Even if you want to include a certain important event or revelation, ask yourself these questions:
  • Did I expect it to happen?
  • If I knew it was going to happen beforehand, would it have affected my enjoyment of the series prior to the event?
  • Is there another way for me to hint that something will happen without revealing it entirely?
To summarize, don't harm the reader's enjoyment of the work by describing events that eliminate surprise, suspense, or dramatic tension.

Must be 100% original content

Read the University of Oxford's definition of plagiarism.
Plagiarism is presenting someone else’s work or ideas as your own, with or without their consent, by incorporating it into your work without full acknowledgement. All published and unpublished material, whether in manuscript, printed or electronic form, is covered under this definition. Plagiarism may be intentional or reckless, or unintentional.
Your synopsis should be your own work. You should not steal ideas, words, or phrasings from sources such as Wikipedia and other databases.
Common phrases will obviously exist in more than one place, but try to keep your synopsis as original as possible.
If you are using someone else's idea in your synopsis, make sure it is small, its usage well-justified, and of course, referenced in a comment.
