Attention aspiring novelists: 826 National, the official HQ of the tutoring and writing centers founded by Dave Eggers, has two items that you are going to want to check out. Pronto. And it’s all for the kids.
- The first is a book of top secret writing knowledge distilled from interviews with Michael Chabon, Paul Auster, Amy Tan, Haruki Murakami, Roddy Doyle, and Stephen King – and it is edited by Daniel Alarcon. It’s called The Secret Miracle: The Novelist’s Handbook and you can but it here.
- But how will you know when that novel is ready to be published? The 826 gang has you covered there, too. They’ve distilled everything that they know about novel-readiness onto this handy poster. What could be simpler? Order your own here.
