Cape Cod Story Collection Class

The date of my one-day class on how to put together and promote a successful story collection is nearing! I’m including the details of how the Cape Cod Writer’s Retreat works, as well as a link to the class itself.

Come spend a weekend at a historic Inn discussing fiction writing and story collections!

“Our 2015-2016 Writing Classes feature a variety of authors from many different writing genres.  You’ll have a chance to meet the author at a wine and cheese reception on Friday night and classes are held Saturdays from
9 am to 5 pm with an hour break for lunch.  Classes are held at the Inn At the Oaks in Eastham, MA and cost just $75/class.

When taking a class, we invite you to stay at the Inn in one of our beautiful writing rooms.  Stay the weekend or stay a week.  All class attendees get a 10% off room rates, and of course you are welcome to share a room with a friend.  When you stay six days or more, you class is free.  Please call the Inn at 508-255-1886 to book your class and room reservation.”
