How awesome was our March 2-8, 2018 Novel Boot Camp in the Jungle? Check out what the incredible writers who were there had to say:
"The curriculum was spot on in terms of what I needed to advance my novel. Spending that much time diving into the craft and drilling, drilling, drilling was kinda life changing..."
"The trip was one of the best experience of my life. To bond with fellow writers, to learn form and function of characters and plot development that you will never learn in a YouTube tutorial or find in any book was invaluable..."
"I can't recommend this workshop enough. Doug and Dan were so organized and really know how to get at what makes a character tick..."
"For serious writers who want to publish and improve their craftsmanship, I highly recommend Breakthrough Writing Retreats..."
We had a super talented group of novelists working on everything from dystopian YA fantasy to literary historical fiction. For five straight days we drilled, wrote and played in one of the most beautiful and inspiring places in Costa Rica. By the time we were finished, we'd nailed down our protagonists' formative events and fatal flaws, written our inciting incidents, worked through peak scenes in the plot, figured out our endings (yep, that's right), optimized our writing process and more--and consumed a Hemingwayesque number of chili guaro shots to boot. The final dinner/reading at K-Rae's Black Sheep in the mountains above Nosara was truly inspiring, something we will never forget.
The next boot camp is scheduled for November 2018, and we can hardly wait. To read more testimonials, visit our Facebook page. For questions about upcoming retreats, email email@example.com.
