TWELVE CLASSES TAUGHT BY TWO AWARD-WINNING AUTHORS, A PUBLISHER, AND A LITERARY AGENT. LEAVE YOUR BUSY LIFE BEHIND AND ESCAPE TO THE COAST TO WRITE AND TO LEARN. EMBRACE THIS RARE OPPORTUNITY ON THE DREAMY NC SHORE.
Invest in your writing by relaxing in an Adirondack chair facing the peaceful ocean with your notebook and pen in hand. There is nowhere else to be except on a date with your writing. You can even start your morning out fresh with a hot mug of coffee on the deck. Breathe in the salty ocean breeze, chat with new friends, or simply close your eyes and feel the warm sun on your skin.
During the day, learn forever writing skills from two award-winning authors with years of experience. There is no better get-away than a cozy oceanfront beach house. Delicious food and snacks are available so you never have to leave. The evenings are made to pamper you. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub to the sound of rolling waves, or curl up on the couch to write with the gorgeous view of the ocean.
The dolphins are usually playful in November and the seagulls love to soar overhead. We will take mindful walks along the quiet shore to enhance your 5 senses, will engage in writing exercises once your mind is feeling free, and will teach you how to layer your newfound skills in your writing to create magical scenes. We will visit a local labyrinth to discover your character's emotional journey to give your work extra depth that hooks readers. This unique retreat is all about letting us pamper you, and creating a relaxing ambiance in casual comfort, where the only distraction is the lulling sound of waves or tempting ocean views.
All of the learning actives are fun and give you the opportunity to make new writing friends. Networking in this industry is a must. Who knows, you may befriend the next New York Times bestselling author, or it may be YOU.
We want you to join us in a relaxing and scenic retreat you'll never forget. Who knows, you may want to stay longer.
WRITE, EAT, RELAX!
