Our Writing Workshops

After hosting a Margie Lawson five-day Immersion intensive in her home in 2014,  Christina came up with the idea of Cruising Writers. What better way to host an intensive writing workshop than to have someone else do the cooking? Christina also realized that some of her best experiences from conferences and intensives came from talking shop and brainstorming story ideas with bestselling authors. She wanted to create an event that gave other writers the same kind of experience. A true retreat where all can relax, gain valuable skills from incredible teaching, and have the opportunity to chat with an author who has been there, done that, and succeeded. As Cruising Writers started to form, Christina also added agents and publishers to the mix, to give retreaters a chance to create a professional network, pitch their stories, and come away from the week with an amazing experience.
