WORKSHOP PARTICIPATION: $2,295 tuition covers six days and five nights lodging, meals, writing workshops, one-on-one manuscript consultations with nationally recognized authors, craft seminars, readings, ferried transportation to the island, and special hotel rates for those who wish to visit Savannah before or after the Retreat.
