Then…join us at the beautifully appointed cottage we’ve chosen especially for it’s fabulous writing spots (a huge screened in porch as well as a private dock right where the ocean meets the back river). Retreats include:
*1 on 1 Advising Session(s) with #1 New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Mitchard. Ms. Mitchard will join the Retreat at Tybee Island via individual zoom sessions. Writers may submit a sample of their work in progress in advance of the retreat, then enjoy a personal advising session with the author of the first-ever Oprah’s Book Club selection, The Deep End of the Ocean, and a total of 23 novels for adults and teenagers. If desired writers may submit a longer selection of their work (up to 10pp) for a Developmental Review. *Separate fees apply for Developmental Reviews.
*Time to Write. Each day during your retreat, you’ll have big, glorious blocks of time to focus on your writing.
*Share. If you choose, gather to share your work in progress and gain insights from other writers.
*Sharpen Your Skills. Use your individual advising session to gain “how to” advice, whether it’s how to develop a character or scene, move your plot along, or get your work in progress ready for publication. Need more advice? Schedule individual or group sessions with a developmental editor (additional fees may apply).
*Soft ocean breezes and glorious views will greet you as you bike or stroll along Tybee’s beautiful beaches, sit a while on one of the gazebos scattered across the island, or spend the day writing on the lovely screened-in porch and/or the fabulous private dock attached to your retreat house.
