A Writer’s Cruise? Who could say no? Money is an issue, you say? This is the best value you’re ever going to find. Sure, you get unlimited food, the beautiful ship, pools, gambling, shows. You get the destinations and shore excursions. You may even get a towel elephant on your bed at night. But let me tell you about what you don’t know is included:
Perfectly polished pages, thanks to Margie Lawson’s workshops and personal feedback. Workshops on many topical writing subjects. Meeting and pitching to a BIG time agent.
But for me, the biggest plus was the chance to network and form strong bonds with other amazing writers. I made many new friends that I’ll stay in touch with forever – It’ll fill your well, guaranteed.Laura Drake, Rita Award-winning Author
Cruising Writers was an incredible experience. I was so pleased to have a two day workshop with the incredible Margie Lawson. I cannot even express how much I learned from her. But the learning didn’t stop there. Having the opportunity to socialize and brainstorm with so many authors and aspiring authors, along with Margie Lawson and the incomparable Deidre Knight was priceless. I had a fabulous time and came back a better writer and increased confidence. I can’t wait for the next cruise!Marly Faulkner
