ABOUT US

We are watching out for you. The Write Agenda is filled with information from public documents, some readily available, others not so much, to keep you informed about publishing industry issues. We also scrutinize claims made by others to evaluate the transparency and accuracy of their reporting.

It’s not enough to write about what happens to authors, publishers and agents. The Write Agenda works hard to ensure that both sides of an issue are explained fairly and in an unbiased fashion. It’s important to discover who initiated a claim, why it was initiated and report what the disposition was. Merely stating the existence of grievance, leaving loose ends, and with obvious prejudice is not effective reporting. Authors, publishers and agents require transparency in order to make up their own minds . . . independently without prejudicial influence. Our goals are to 1) excavate the truth behind important issues and claims, and 2) to hold those responsible behind specific claims, and their leaders, accountable.

Let us all strive to extinguish the flames of controversy, end the derision and pursue equity in the resolution of author grievances.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

– Albert Einstein

Open Letter to Eric Grimm: Christian authors ‘targeted’ by PublishAmerica, says CBA 

ABOUT US

We are a group of individuals, writers, want-to-be authors and inquisitive wordsmiths that have become “literally” numb from reading the numerous author help related blog posts. Many of  these postings are subjective and do not offer any substantial documentation regarding purported claims regarding publishers and other industry professionals. In addition, many of these sites have become nothing more than complaint boards that disseminate speculative claims without any substantiation.  We do not discount the validity of some claims made. However, we want to question both sides of an issue and to assist other authors in making informed decisions. If a fact is proven true we’ll support it. If a claim is twisted, slanted, incomplete, not updated (retracted) or smells like innuendo . . . we’ll challenge it.

We will not engage in self-promotion, post links to our books or encourage you, in any way, to purchase our books.

ABOUT US

We are a group of individuals, writers, want-to-be authors and inquisitive wordsmiths that have become “literally” numb from reading the numerous author help related blog posts. Many of  these postings are subjective and do not offer any substantial documentation regarding purported claims regarding publishers and other industry professionals. In addition, many of these sites have become nothing more than complaint boards that disseminate speculative claims without any substantiation.  We do not discount the validity of some claims made. However, we want to question both sides of an issue and to assist other authors in making informed decisions. If a fact is proven true we’ll support it. If a claim is twisted, slanted, incomplete, not updated (retracted) or smells like innuendo . . . we’ll challenge it.

We will not engage in self-promotion, post links to our books or encourage you, in any way, to purchase our books.
