Workshops for the Weary

April 7, 2018

How can a "Workshop" help the weary? Isn't that a contradiction in terms?


For writers, yes and no. I'm making plans to attend what is probably my favorite writing workshop. Southeastern Writers Association holds their annual workshop at St. Simons Island, Georgia in June of each year.


It's four+ fun-filled (yes, FUN!) days and evenings with a group that quickly becomes family. With a 75-attendee limit, it reduces that enormous crush of people that can intimidate the introvert and exhaust the extrovert. You have the opportunity to meet and chat and mingle with other authors, both published and just starting out, as well as literary agents and publishers.


With classes in both fiction and nonfiction, SWA offers a little something for everyone. This year's lineup includes CD Mitchell on Short Fiction, Michael Wiley on Fiction, Dana Wildsmith, Poetry; Cappy Hall Rearick, Humor and Columns... plus a self-publishing track with classes on marketing, editing, and publishing.


The fee for this 4-day workshop is comparatively low, considering the number of classes offered; and staying at Epworth by the Sea is not only relaxing, but also a bargain. Your daily rate includes ALL meals, not to mention the opportunity to "hobnob" with the agent-in-residence, publisher, and other authors! Plus, this year's workshop is offering FREE head shots as an added bonus! And free contests you can enter!


I first attended SWA in 1996, and t's an event I still look forward to each year. Returning year after year and seeing familiar and new faces is like going to a family reunion...except it's fun!


Join the family and mark your calendar to come this year!
