NWOE Press Release:Announcing a Pre-Conference Craft and Development Guide
There are no great writers, only great rewriters.
- Algonkian Conferences Motto
The New York Write to Pitch will soon possess its own Kindle book focusing on the large and comprehensive amount of novel development and editorial matter available here at Novel Writing on Edge and at Algonkian Author Connect.
The e-book, now available for pre-order on Amazon, will generally follow the layout of assignments and preparation as presented to writers, a stage at a time, prior to their attendance at the conference,and while adding additional essays and narrative models.
Samples as follows:
Relentless Application I : The High Concept Premise, Dramatic Act Structure and Plotting Nuance, Six Act Two-Goal Novel, Diagnostic Pitching, and more.
Relentless Application II: Ten Critical First Steps, Epiphany Light, Seven Novel Sins, Logs and Cores as Development Tool, the Three Most Primary Core Elements, Top Worst Writer Advice, Statements of Theme, and more.
As to the value of this new guide, the article, Labor, Sins, and Six Acts, states it plainly:
"The advice featured is based on decades of experience in the business (e.g., hundreds of sessions at the New York Pitch Conference and many more hundreds in writer workshops across the U.S.), as well as lessons learned from great novel authors, playwrights, and screenplay writers."
