Greg Smith founded Agile Writers in 2011 with the mission of finding a new approach to helping beginning writers complete a first-draft novel in 6 months. Greg created “The Agile Writer Method” based upon the writings of experts in mythology, screenwriting, psychology and a little project management.
His seminars on the Agile Writer Method have informed and delighted hundreds of writers, scholars, and university students. Since 2011, Agile Writer authors have completed over 20 first draft novels, 5 published novels, and two members have been nominated for the coveted James River Writer Best Unpublished Novel Contest.
Agile Writers is a writer’s club dedicated to helping the beginning writer create a first-draft novel in 6 months. Greg Smith created the Agile Writer Method as a way of getting from a blank page to a full manuscript. The Method is based on the writings of experts in the field and years of interaction with writers of all skill levels. It is the contention of Agile Writers that anyone who has a story to tell can complete a first-draft novel in 6 months using the Agile Writer Method.
“You don’t have to be a great grammarian or great speller to write a novel. You don’t have to have connections in the writing world. What you need to have is a passion for your story idea and a plan to complete. You bring the passion, we’ll help you with the plan.”
