FOR WRITERS AT ALL LEVELS
“Story Merchant” Dr. Ken Atchity (PhD Yale) has spent his lifetime helping writers get started with and improve their careers. For nearly twenty years as a professor of literature and teacher of creative writing at Occidental College and UCLA—then, since 1995, through Writer’s Lifeline and as a literary manager with AEI Online and Story Merchant (www.storymerchant.com) Ken has helped hundreds of writers find a market for their work by bringing their craft and technique to the level of their ambition and vision. More
offers writers of all kinds information, guidance, solutions, and
opportunities for transporting their vision onto the page and into
the commercial marketplace in a way that will reach the greatest
possible audience. We hope you'll find this site informative, instructive,
entertaining, and ultimately profitable.
The Writer's Lifeline is a full-range editorial services company
led by founder and chairman Ken
Atchity, building on Ken's forty years experience in the literary world: as author, producer, career coach, screenwriter, consultant, editor, instructor, agent, literary manager, and public speaker.
Writer's Lifeline prepares
writers for the commercial book and film marketplace by bringing
your skills to the level of your talent and vision. Writer's Lifeline
clients have accounted for millions of dollars in booked sales by
our sister (parent) company Story Merchant and Atchity Productions since we opened
our doors in 1996.
Writer's Lifeline appraises your writing with practical-minded discernment
and teaches you, one on one, how to marry creativity and commerce.
Because of our special relationship with Story Merchant, we're always on the
lookout for potentially commercial writing talent that we can bridge
to the success you deserve. That means our editorial guidance is
based not only upon artistic principles, but also upon today's marketplace
Once we've helped you bring your project up to the highly competitive
level of the marketplace, we help you take that last step by having
our sister company Story Merchant or an appropriate agency give it priority
consideration for representation. Sometimes, all it takes is being
pointed in the right direction by a coach who's played in the big
leagues. We've helped bestsellers Steve
Michael Pratt, Shirley Palmer, Cheryl
Saban, Docre Stoker, Jerry Blame, Lisa McCubbine, Clint Hill Ripley's
Scott Shepherd, and Minnesota
Governor Jesse Ventura. Let Writer's Lifeline help you perfect
your best asset.
Our development professionals can help you get your finished work
into shape for today's market. You can save even more money, time,
and sweat by retaining the services of a development editor BEFORE
you finish your manuscript.
We can help you over the rough spots, help you translate your talent
into the kind of marketable skill that publishers and entertainment
execs recognize—and get excited about.
