Welcome to the Algonkian Author Salon, a multifaceted fiction and nonfiction writer community for beginners, veteran writers and published authors, as well as agents and editors in the commercial publishing business who are actively searching for projects and new voices in a variety of genres. We tell the writer what works, what doesn't work, and what needs to be developed further - while they can still do something about it.
