WINTER STORY SUMMIT

The Winter Story Summit occurs  on a five-night tour of the Caribbean from February 22 to February 27. The Winter Story Summit emphasizes intimacy and health in the writing process. Each Summit participant will be mentored in one-on-one sessions with award-winning professionals, and collaborate in small groups and round table discussions with talented peers and working mentors.
