A Getaway for Poets, Fiction and Nonfiction Writers

Treat yourself to a writing retreat at the shore. Down the block from Atlantic City’s famous beach and boardwalk, this affordable workshop will energize and inspire you. Head home with sand between your toes, a few new pieces of writing and the glow that comes from spending the day with an encouraging community of writers.

"I really appreciate the amount of thought you put into the workshop. I have a tendency to write with the emergency brake on. The exercises you gave us provided me with some wonderful new tools for freeing my imagination." ~ Mary, Bala Cynwyd, PA, Shore Thing Writing Getaway Participant

"The Getaway was exactly what I needed to recharge as a writer and start the year off on the right foot. From the supportive community to the hotel’s friendly atmosphere, I left feeling inspired. Now I can't wait to get back to work on the many projects I've lined up for myself. I only wish the Getaway could last all year!" ~ Cate, Pittsburgh, PA
