The Writing Excuses team has once again come together to bring you our annual cruise ship-based writing retreat. We’ll be hosting you all September 19th – 27th with classes, workshops, and time for your own writing… all wrapped up in a magical Caribbean vacation!
The masterclass will be a smaller event than our typical cruises, and the beginning of a new event structure for 2022: multiple smaller events, each with a deep focus on a particular aspect of the writing craft. This new format has been in the works for a while, and this year, as the US begins its recovery from the pandemic, seems like the perfect opportunity to start. For those who prefer our large-group experiences, don’t worry–we will be having a large cruise in fall 2022. Stay tuned for more!
Our cruise will stop at the following ports with opportunities for excursions: Cozumel and Costa Maya in Mexico, Roatan in Honduras, and Belize City in Belize. While on the ship, there will be an in-depth masterclass on plot and structure taught by Writing Excuses’ own Dan Wells. He’ll teach a class on each non-port day, with each class building on the previous ones in a curriculum far more detailed and advanced than we’ve ever been able to offer before. Mary Robinette Kowal (that’s me!) and DongWon Song will also be on board, hosting breakout sessions, office hours, and other group social events.
