THE MOST SUCCESSFUL WRITER EVENTS FOR
ASPIRING LITERARY AND COMMERCIAL AUTHORS
According to our biased and successful alums, Algonkian Writer Conferences
are the most beneficial events for the creation and publication of commercial genre and upmarket novels. But you must decide for yourself. We are not a fit for everyone. Keep in mind that our ultimate goal is to realistically increase your odds of becoming a published 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 own 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 going forward.
See our "Event Comparisons" page on our Algonkian Writer Conferences website
to review a complete listing of even more unique features that separate us from the competition.
Upcoming events include the Monterey Writers Retreat, New York Pitch Conference, the Write to Market Conference, and the Algonkian Writer Retreats.
