NEW YORK PITCH CONFERENCE REVIEWS
ALGONKIAN WRITERS CONFERENCE EVENTS,
REVIEWS, WORKSHOPS, RETREATS
According to our alums, Algonkian Writer Conferences
host the most practical and enlightening events for writers and authors wishing to break into major commercial markets. Keep in mind that our ultimate goal is to realistically increase your odds of becoming a published commercial author by showing you how to inhabit that upper percentile of writers who will have their work taken seriously by professionals in the business. We don't believe good writers are born. We believe they are made by virtue of their tenacity and ability to acquire the knowledge necessary to achieve commercial success.
At Algonkian events, only top literary agents, authors, and publishing house editors are selected as faculty. The critical advice you receive regarding market positioning, story premise and plot, character arc and evolution, competitive narrative voice, and all else, is provided only by these professionals. You receive comprehensive pre-event assignments and readings as well as access to a story-building online assignment forum; and at the conclusion of events, we brainstorm individual publication plans for our writers.
