Develop your book, play, story or screenplay in this dynamic writing workshop and retreat, with NY Times best-selling authors and literary agent.
Story and manuscript development come alive at this acclaimed, professional workshop for authors of fiction, nonfiction, screenplays, plays and poetry. Develop your book, start a new project, fine tune your manuscript, or perfect your writing in progress.
Writers of all levels attend to generate new material, develop ideas, or shape their stories.
The Dublin Writers Retreat is hosted by the Rohm Literary Agency and led by NY Times best-selling author and literary agent Wendy Goldman Rohm. Ms. Rohm's acclaimed conferences have been held since 2002 worldwide, originally inspired by the series of honorary Masters Teas she presented at Yale.
Writers are guided through the creation process, fine tuning and perfecting their work--from the seed of an idea to a high-quality book map or draft.
The conference includes all sessions, a working lunch, and optional networking soiree and group dinner. Writers book their own rooms near the United Arts Club, or at the club. For the full schedule, see the Schedule page or write to us. See the Testimonials page for reviews from authors worldwide.
