AAC is developing this particular forum thread for SFF writers to post sell sheets of their completed novels, or novels-in-progress, for the purpose of showcasing them to literary agents and publishing house editors. We will invite several of them to stop by and visit from time to time as 2021 moves forward. If they wish to request something now, or at a future date, they will either contact you directly, make a post, or else contact us. It is also possible they might wish to video conference with you. The scenarios are various, but all is casual. There is no set schedule, no formal workshop.

If any writer desires feedback from other writers posting in the forum, they should note in their topic subject line: FEEDBACK OKAY. We recommend considering critique only from experienced writers who have participated in Algonkian events previously, but do not be shocked if one of our own editors stops by and comments.


After starting a new topic in this forum, your topic subject line should appear like so: "TITLE OF NOVEL IN CAPS, Genre - Your Name, e.g., THE GOD BENDER, Epic Fantasy - Sandra W. Cohen

The sell sheet elements as follows:

  • Your name
  • Novel title(s) (you might have more than one)
  • Genre 
  • Comparables (important to get it straight - WE on comparables)
  • Hook Line (conflict with core wound - WE article)
  • Short pitch (200 words or less - examples)
  • Prose Sample (up to 500 words with dialogue)

You may post two novels, but each in a separate topic. No more than two.

You may also include a little bio about yourself after the sell sheet bullets.
