Write at the Beach
Outer Banks Writing Workshop and Retreat
Corolla, North Carolina

Janine and Alison in a Write at the Beach workshopUnplug your inner writer in the beautiful Outer Banks with New York Times bestselling author Janine Latus. All skill levels are welcome.

Stay in a spacious Corolla home with access to the beach, nature trails, and quiet spaces, as well as the charm of the Outer Banks.

We will be writing to cues, sharing our words in a safe environment led by a professional writing coach who will help us to release all of those pent-up imaginary people, scenes, and scenarios bottled up in your mind. Four structured sessions will be interspersed with plenty of time for writing, wandering or just lying around relaxing. Bring paper and your favorite writing utensil. Laptops are welcome but won’t be used during the actual writing sessions.

Relax in the hot tub, bring a bike and explore the nature trails or sprawl on the deck reading a book. Enjoy area restaurants, spas, shopping, or yoga during your free time.

Here’s what former students of Janine’s have had to say:

“Janine was fantastic. She is clearly a talented writer, but she is also a gifted teacher. I found myself driven to use what she had showed us in my exercises, which in turn expanded my view on how writing could progress in new directions.”

“Her ‘snippet-lectures’ were very practical and down to earth, and her critiques were affirming. I especially enjoyed that she participates as a writer as well as an instructor in the class, so we get to see how she develops the cues from a much more experienced perspective.”
