Seven Reasons to Become an Algonkian Alum

In our opinion, Algonkian is the most beneficial novel workshop, online course and writer conference provider in the U.S., Canada and U.K., for commercial novel genres and upmarket novel fiction. 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 ( e.g., Write to Market ) 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. As an Algonkian alum you are invited, at no cost, to join our premiere online novel incubator, the Algonkian Author Salon, in order to further perfect your work, as necessary, while having it examined by agents who frequent the website searching for projects to represent.

Below are introductions to both our online and offline events and workshops. Links to more info regarding the books displayed below and their relationship to Algonkian can be found at Algonkian Commentary and on Algonkian AS News.
