For those who choose, many of us will be spending a week in London, in a bed and breakfast near the British Museum including breakfast and seeing nine plays. (Flight from Copenhagen to London is less than $100) We will be opting for best seats available. Cynthia will choose the plays. And we may also do one or two backstage tours. The cost of this week will be approximately $1,500 per person, twin rooms. Not including lunches and dinners. Book this week directly with Cynthia, not the cruise agency. It may be slightly more or less depending on the plays and rates next spring.
All “At Sea” days will feature writing workshops from 9:00 a.m. to Noon. We’ll write on our own in the afternoons. We will reconvene to talk shop over dinner together, then hold evening writing salons where we read aloud, critique our work and solve any writing problems that come up. With eight At Sea days, it’s possible for each writer to have more than 50 pages written on this voyage.
The workshops will cover everything you need to know to successfully create, complete and market your projects. Subjects include:
How to choose an idea. Research.
Story structure. Character Development.
Scene cards and Storyboards.
Love Stories. Humor. Genres.
Film and Theatre Formats.
Style. Voice. Scene and Summary.
Revising and Polishing.
Using Right Brain/Left Brain.
