ROLLING ADMISSIONS.

The Algonkian Novel Writing Courses were brainstormed by the faculty and director of Algonkian Writer Conferences, and later tested by NYC publishing professionals for practical and time-sensitive utilization by genre (YA, SF/F, mystery/thriller, WF, etc.) writers as well as upmarket literary writers who desire to become career authors. Therefore, if you wish to begin or restart your novel, rewrite it with guidance, or just reality-check the progress with our faculty professionals, you've come to the right place.

The goal is to get you as close to the brass ring as possible, to make your novel as commercially competitive as it needs to be on all levels while avoiding critical missteps, bad advice, and exorbitant prices for classes and mentorship. And it does not matter what stage your novel is currently in, or where you are in your writing life. The program steps and methodology, as well as the faculty, enable you to learn and grow as a writer together with your novel, and at your own pace. Once you accomplish the program, your work is thoroughly reviewed by our professionals and together you set publication goals, discuss agent representation options, and engage in manuscript and project edits as needed and appropriate ...

The Algonkian Writer Retreat and Novel Workshop now includes new pre-event craft studies as well as a pre-event phone consultation, a broader range of faculty, new and vital workshops, as well as extended personal time with business professionals. In keeping with the spirit of this place and the goals of this unique workshop retreat, you can be as goal-oriented or as hesitant in approach as you wish. You can show us your manuscript, improve your skills, have your work read by our writer mentors, attend our workshops, pitch a literary agent or two, whatever works for you, whatever helps you grow and discover your vision as a writer...

DATES TBA, 2020.

The St. Augustine Author-Mentor Novel Workshop provides an ideal mix of experienced professionals dedicated to working one-on-one with aspiring authors to not only teach them the knowledge and skills they must have to be successful, but also provide them with valuable commentary on their completed novel or work-in-progress. All writers will work with a Pulitzer winner, a Hollywood Producer, a senior publishing house editor, as well as two literary agents and a seasoned writing workshop leader.

Founded in 1565, St. Augustine is the oldest city in America. But what is the oldest city in America like? Imagine the French Quarter in New Orleans meets Santa Cruz, California, and as a bonus, a miles-long strip of white Cocoa Beach thrown in for good measure. The best of classic Florida and old-world Spain fuse to form a unique world that provides us with the ideal location for both a stimulating and productive writer event.

The St. Augustine Author-Mentor Novel Workshop creates an intimate and professional environment that combines private meetings with small-group workshops, thus enabling aspiring authors to wisely approach the writing and publication of their novel. At the St. Augustine event, aspiring authors will: 1) work one-on-one with authors and savvy market professionals; 2) acquire the market skills and advanced story and narrative technique they must know to become published; 3) learn the necessary inside mechanics of the publishing business; and 4) leave the workshop with a detailed plan to work towards publication of their novel...
