Participants can drift down the Savannah River, docking at the coastal city of Savannah, Georgia. Writers will reside within the historic district, allowing full immersion to the sights, sounds, and flavors of Savannah. Writing Adventurers will experience the picturesque district and its history. The manicured parks, horse-drawn carriages and antebellum architecture, along with a cast of famous characters, will be weaved into the writing sessions. This weekend workshop is designed for all levels of writers. You will expand aspects of your craft with experiences and writing exercises. Participants will play games, experiment with style, and learn the purpose and place of Southern Gothic literature. Go beyond the cobblestoned squares and parks full of Spanish Moss trees, you will enrich your writing and infuse your words with a haunting Southern atmosphere.
