Boots are reluctantly on home turf again after this November's sold-out Novel Boot Camp. Our time in Costa Rica was productive, rewarding, rejuvenating, fun--and now that we're back kind of feels like a misty jungle dream.

The next iteration of Novel Boot Camp is happening from February 24 - March 2, 2019 and promises to be more lucid and memorable than ever. Details here.
How about ditching the First-World grind to focus on your writing? Leaving that cellphone in a drawer and engaging your manuscript without guilt or distraction?
At Novel Boot Camp in the Jungle we're gonna pack your brain full of literary know-how and make you sweat like a pen-wielding grunt...but it's not just about writing. Boot Camp is about feeding your soul the raw experience it needs to fuel months of creativity.

It's happening from February 24 - March 2, 2019 in Nosara, Costa Rica, one of only five "blue zones" in the world, where people regularly live to over 100 years old. Nosara has been voted the number-one place to visit in Costa Rica and one of the top twenty surfing destinations in the world. It's on the forefront of sustainability, has the cleanest water-table in the country and is home to a booming population of wildlife: monkeys, armadillos, coati, crocs, anteaters, 270 species of birds and an unfathomable variety of marine life, including Olive Ridley turtles, who nest down the road at the Ostional Wildlife Refuge. Two of Costa Rica's longest rivers converge at Nosara, a magical nexus of mystery and synchronicity where something unexpected always happens and you cannot escape the plot. Get ready to:
