How do you build a plot? Who is a successful hero? How do you find your special literary voice? How do you get accepted for book publishing and improve the chances of success in the Israeli market, and what do you do if you want to adapt the book for television or translate it and break into the international market? If you write or want to write, this is the guide for you. Hagar Yanai leads you hand in hand along the exciting journey of writing a book and publishing it - from the moment an idea flashes in your head, through the craft of building the story until your book is placed on the shelf in bookstores. Write and Publish is a useful guide intended for both beginning writers and advanced writers who already have a complete manuscript and want to improve it. It offers professional guidance, an up-to-date map of the Israeli book market, and dozens of creative writing exercises that you can perform for your own pleasure. The book features more than forty Israeli writers who talk about their writing experience and give practical advice.
