Writers Fusion Manual is a user-friendly guide to starting a student based novel-writing project that provides students the required skills to write a novel and achieve publication in the book market. The manual is designed to stand out from the mundane instructional texts that collect dust on book shelves in school districts around the country.
The Writers Fusion Manual uses a stream-lined approach with helpful hints to provide step-by-step instructions while remaining accessible and light in tone. Filled with amusing, touching, and always insightful anecdotes, each chapter emphasizes lessons learned that will allow teachers and instructors to benefit from the setbacks, challenges, and, of course, successes experienced during the Writers Fusion team’s first years of operation
The Manual provides guidance in networking with professionals which is essential to the success of Writers Fusion. One factor that sets Writers Fusion apart from other writing programs is its focus on informing students about the realities of publication and the correct professional protocol expected of aspiring authors when approaching the publishing industry.
By reaching out to professionals in the community, including authors, agents, editors, marketers, and publishers, and inviting them in to interact with teen authors, Writers Fusion students gain powerful insights into their local writing community and learn the business side of the process. These experiences have proven to be strong motivating influences when it comes to meeting deadlines and maintaining the self-discipline necessary to complete novel length manuscripts. The Writers Fusion Manual explores the networking needed to accomplish such endeavors in the classroom.
