Vacation with literary agents! At this annual conference for fiction, creative nonfiction and memoir writers, you will spend mornings in small groups facilitated by literary agents who will critique 1,500 - 1,800 words of your manuscript. Afternoons, hang out on the white sand beach, swim in the Caribbean Sea or explore the village of Hopkins. Early evening, gather for inspiring workshops on building a nourishing writing practice and developing an entrepreneurial approach to being an author. The 2020 conference offers a special books-to-film focus for anyone who has a great story that they believe would make an amazing movie. Our faculty includes Liz Parker of Verve Talent Agency and Michelle Tessler of Tessler Literary Agency, along with authors Dorothy Rice, Susan Wooldridge, Lucinda Jackson and Joey Garcia. Join us April 25 - 30, 2020! Advance registration required. See our website for details.
