OUR MISSION

The Story Summit  gathers award-winning professionals and accomplished experts from across the globe to provide intimate, meaningful and profitable relationships with screenwriters and authors in an inspiring, immersive and luxurious environment. 

 

Writer's Retreat

ALASKA STORY SUMMIT

The Alaska Story Summit occurs on a seven-night tour of the Inside Passage all the way to the Hubbard Glacier, the largest piece of ice in North America from June 12 to June 19. The Alaska 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. 

INSPIRATION. EDUCATION. ENGAGEMENT.

Story Summits refresh and inspire gifted writers in an immersive and inviting setting. A stimulating community of successful writers guide you to finish well with your personal writing project.  You will discover new and transformative habits to strengthen your ability and confidence to complete your undertaking, launching it into a commercial product. 

 

There will be two Story Summits in 2020. The Winter Story Summit will set sail in February in the Caribbean. The Summer Story Summit will take place on an Alaskan cruise in June.
