ST. SIMONS ISLAND, GA – Through the years, the abundant beauty of the Georgia coast has inspired artists of every stripe, including poets, novelists and playwrights.
In 1878, poet Sidney Lanier extolled the lush beauty of our coastal landscape, in his ode to “The Marshes of Glynn.” Many others have written about coastal Georgia’s towns and cities and their inhabitants. One of the best-known local authors was Eugenia Price, who wrote 14 historical novels about the Georgia and Florida coasts in the 1800s. During the 1930s, playwright Eugene O’Neill built a home and worked on Sea Island, where he wrote “Ah, Wilderness,” his only comedy. Another writer of the period, Ben Ames William, also lived and wrote on Sea Island.
Contemporary writers can find similar inspiration – along with healthy doses of fellowship and professional guidance – during Scribblers’ Retreat Writers Workshops. During two-day conferences, writers attend workshops, lectures and panel discussions led by ten world-class authors, editors, publishers and other literary professionals. Each conference begins with an Opening Ceremonies Banquet Thursday evening and ends with an Evening with the Authors cocktail reception Saturday evening.
Scribblers’ Retreat Writers Conferences take place at the historic King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, St. Simons Island’s only oceanfront hotel. Workshop participants enjoy contemplative walks along the beach, and are within minutes of St. Simons’s Island’s beautiful lighthouse and pier village with its many shops and restaurants. Special rates are available for conference participants.
