Now you too can practice your craft on this beautiful private Bahamian island. The Salt Cay Writers Retreat invites literary and commercial fiction writers, memoirists, and narrative nonfiction writers (both published and unpublished) to join them for a memorable week of writing and instruction on Salt Cay, October 20th-26th. Half-week registrations are also available.
Imagine a faculty of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, top editors from the most prestigious publishers, and prominent literary agents. Add a sunset dinner cruise, swimming with dolphins as part of the curriculum, and island feasts with local entertainment. Finish with plenty of time to write in a beautiful, secluded, relaxing, and inspiring setting.
With 65 students and 10 faculty members, the Salt Cay Writers Retreat focuses on craft at an MFA level in a non-academic setting.
