Yesterday, a writer’s cruise was brought to my attention. And wow, did it ever get my attention!
The Writing Excuses Workshop and Retreat 2018! (scroll past the ticket info to get to the event details)
Take a look at the incredible instructors and the amazing seminars being offered!
I have met a couple of these instructors at Can-Con in Ottawa and I was incredibly shy and quiet around them very impressed by them. To have the opportunity to have a one-on-one session with even one of these instructors – where you can cover anything from a critique, worldbuilding, pitching practice (no, not baseball!), or simply get general writing advice – is worth it’s weight in gold.
The seminars themselves are extremely comprehensive and include writing exercises and Q&A time with the professor as well as instructional time.
The cruise allows for a guest to accompany their writer, with a nice discount. Children aged 12-17 can also attend seminars with parental guidance.
Please bear in mind that the prices listed are in USD but they include things like WiFi, gratuities, and transfers to/from the Houston WX hotel, all things that are not normally included in cruise pricing.
There are only a few tickets to the conference left! What are you waiting for?
