If you think November is the beginning of winter, think again. At the Writer's Digest Retreat on the Water in Celebration, Florida , November is the beginning of your renaissance as a writer. This one-of a kind event is your ticket to becoming the writer you were born to be. Realizing your full potential as a writer takes commitment—and as a literary agent and a writer myself, I know that the path to publishing is often a rocky road that can challenge any writer's commitment. That's why every writer needs some R&R dedicated to honoring their craft and hanging out with fellow writers.
So take a break from the chill of November and solitude of the writing life and escape to sunny Florida to review your work, recharge your creativity and refresh your writer's soul. It's all happening November 13–16 at the beautiful Bohemian Hotel Celebration (with a name like that you know it's got to be fun!), where you'll join me, acclaimed author Hallie Ephron and Writer's Digest Senior Editor Robert Brewer for a one-of-a-kind workshop devoted to honing your opening pages, strengthening your plot, polishing your writing and pitching your work.
And the perks!—yes, there are perks!—a lake, a swimming pool, wonderful shops and bars and restaurants for you to explore with your new writer friends. Not to mention nearby Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. Can we say The Wizarding World of Harry Potter?
The Retreat on the Water is the new lease on your writing life that will take your writing—and your career—to the next level. So sign up now—spots are limited, and they're going quickly—and treat yourself to a celebration of craft, creativity and camaraderie that will inspire and inform your work for years to come.
