We wish to create a unique experience for all and to that end, ask that only serious children writers apply. 

If you have not yet been accepted into the 2019 workshop, please send 3 sample pages of your work (double space / 12 point font and 1” margins all around) to: lisa@bigsurchildrenswriters.com. Submitted material does not have to be the work you plan on bringing to the workshop.

Once we’ve reviewed your material, we will contact you directly.  

Please know this workshop fills up quickly and we have limited space available. 

Cost includes two workshops with two mentors in small group critique format, all meals, opening cocktail hour, panels throughout the weekend with editors, authors and agents, and lodging for two nights. $995 (double room). PLEASE NOTE: single rooms are no longer available. While we will have coffee, tea and water available, you will be responsible for your drinks.

Do you have a guest or spouse accompanying you who is not attending the conference? An additional fee of $250 will be incurred for their meals.
