Sleep at home and save at the Capes Escape Boot Camp for authors.
Yes, you can attend a real work out for writers, learn what you need to know, meet other writers, get inspired, have tons of fun and sleep in your own bed to save money.
The four-day event takes place at the Courtenay and District Museum’s award-winning heritage vacation rental home, Capes Escape from July 20 to 24.
Author Paula Wild will provide information on the publishing industry, as well as tips on how to edit your work and create a story that engages publishers and readers. Each person will leave the workshop with a practical plan for finishing their book.
Boot Camp for Authors includes group sessions, an evaluation of up to 20 pages of your work and a personal consultation with Wild. Participants will also have an opportunity to read their work aloud and enjoy presentations and conversation with a variety of guest authors.
Special price for Courtenay and District Museum members registering by June 16 is $600. The fee for non-members who wish to sleep at home is $675.
Wild is the author of three traditionally published books, all of which appeared on the B.C. Bestseller list soon after publication, as well as two commissioned books.
Throughout her 30 year career she has written for many national and regional periodicals including Beautiful British Columbia, Reader’s Digest and the Vancouver Sun. Many of her more than 1,000 articles have been cover stories.
