Fisherman's Wharf Writers Conference

Event Details

  • Beside the San Francisco Bay, aspiring authors will study and apply the most effective techniques of craft and style while also learning the necessary facts about the publishing market. This Algonkian Writer Conference event is only open to serious writers who wish to either begin the novel or work towards perfecting their novel-in-progress (while also learning to write short fiction). To assist in the endeavor, Algonkian has put together a team of literary pros. They include literary agents April Eberhardt, Gordon Warnock, and Elizabeth Kracht, as well as market and publicity pros Isabella Michon and David Cole, and author-editor, Michael Neff. More on them can be found here.

    During 45+ hours of actual workshop time, students will engage in those rigorous narrative and complication/plot exercises necessary to produce a publishable manuscript. The three areas of emphasis will be PREMISE, PLATFORM, and EXECUTION. Writers, regardless of experience, will come away from this five day intensive with the specific knowledge they need to create an intellectual and emotionally powerful novel. Genres we work with at Algonkian Writer Conferences include general commercial fiction, literary fiction, serious and light women's fiction, mystery/cozy/thriller, SF/F, young adult, and memoir/narrative non-fiction.
