Half Off Writing Boot Camps ~ South Lake Tahoe, California

For the last five years, I’ve been teaching writing retreats in gorgeous South Lake Tahoe, CA. And each year I keep expanding. New retreats. More instuctors. More instruction!

My co-instructor, Catharine Bramkamp, and I offering writers a very special limited-time offer:

If you come to either two or all three of our Tahoe boot camps this fall, and you sign up before January 31, you will get HALF OFF your boot camp cost.

While every house we’ve rented has been drop-dead gorgeous, we’ve had our eye on this property for some years. In order to rent it, we need to get writers on board ASAP to commit to coming so we can pay for the house and lock it in. Continue Reading…

Scene Mastery Boot Camp ~ Geyserville, California

My co-instructor, Catharine Bramkamp, and I are putting on seven—yes, seven!—boot camps all over northern California (though, if you and your writer friends are interested in hosting us to teach one in your area, contact us to discuss!). Last week I shared information about our first boot camp, to be held in the historic Gold Rush town of Nevada City.

This week, learn about our second Scene Mastery Boot Camp set in the heart of California’s gorgeous wine country.

Why a boot camp?

Because getting away from the daily grind and distractions affords you the opportunity to focus 100% on your writing. No cleaning, laundry, meals to cook. Just indulge in your creativity.

At our boot camps, you’ll spend three full days with other writers, writing, brainstorming, reading your material, getting constructive feedback and personal attention, and having fun!

How often do you get out of your cage and just hang out with other creatives in a small group setting like this? Continue Reading…

Scene Mastery Boot Camp ~ Nevada City, California

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing information about the 2019 writing boot camps. My co-instructor, Catharine Bramkamp, and I are putting on seven—yes, seven!—all over northern California (though, if you and your writer friends are interested in hosting us to teach one in your area, contact us to discuss!).

Writers come from places like Australia, Canada, Sweden, as well as all parts of the US.

Why? Because they really want to get their novel plotted, and they want hands-on, in-person help. They want to experience the amazing process of spending three full days not only plotting their own novel but engaging in the process of generating ideas, harnessing creativity, and forming it into something organized and downright fantastic.

That’s why they come to our plotting boot camps.

Over the last few years, we’ve been doing boot camps in South Lake Tahoe, CA, just for plotting. But last year we added a Scene Mastery Boot Camp. Continue Reading…
