If your character’s next move isn’t clear or your poem lacks focus, we have a conference just for you. Cure your writer’s block with the Seaside Writer’s Conference. Sit back, shove your toes in the sand and let the inspiration wash over you like the day’s waves.
The workshop spans several days in May in Seaside, Florida, a beach town known for its sugar sand and Gulf waters. Stroll down the beach at sunset while working on scenes for your next manifesto and swing by Central Square and visit Sundog Books. Their collection does not disappoint.
The conference has a little something for everyone, including authors who have written their next incredible piece, but are having a hard time getting it published. Learn how to get past the gatekeepers in the publishing world with this seminar, titled Jumping the Slush Pile Shark. Writers looking to turn their words into the next must-see television show or feature film will find solace and advice at this seminar, titled The Pitch.
Seaside might look familiar to lovers of “The Truman Show,” which used the beach community as its perfect town in the film. Pastel houses, picket fences, and unique boutiques are just a few treasures waiting to be discovered in Seaside. Locally owned restaurants offer guests unique cuisine in an unforgettable setting. Check out Bud & Alley’s around sunset, don’t miss the grilled cheese at The Meltdown on 30A and choose your favorite seafood at the Shrimp Shack.
