The week-long workshop sponsored by the Cape Eleuthera Writers & Artist Workshop series will bring together a small group of adults interested in fiction writing to the Cape Eleuthera campus to work with celebrated author, Richard Bausch. Participants will further develop their writing by receiving expert feedback on their own manuscripts in a safe and constructive environment as well as by engaging in writing exercises, by considering issues of craft and of the writing life, and ultimately by cultivating a community based upon the shared love of writing. “Sense of place,” a concept deeply integral to the philosophy and mission of The Cape Eleuthera Island School, will be interwoven into the fabric of the week, both in the actual workshop activities and in “exploration time.” The workshop ultimately promises to be a perfect mix of instruction, inspiration, relaxation, and celebration of the art of fiction. Highlights of the week include:

  • Intimate workshop experience with veteran writer, Richard Bausch
  • Individualized feedback on a manuscript
  • “Exploration time” to enjoy the beaches, waters, and Cape Eleuthera
  • All-day “Sense of Place” writing retreat at Lighthouse Beach
  • Optional afternoon activities, including SCUBA, snorkeling, and biking
  • Accommodations in the new state-of-the-art Hallig Lodge
  • Variety of evening social and literary events, including sunset cruise, “book club” with author, and catered final banquet
