Our California workshop is full.

You may apply for our waiting list or join us on the Cape!

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 2018 workshop, or participated in a Big Sur workshop before, please send us 5 sample pages of your work (double space / 12 point font and 1” margins all around) to: lisa@bigsurchildrenswriters.com. 

Once we’ve reviewed your material, we will contact you directly. Submitted material does not have to be the work you plan on bringing to the workshop. 

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. $895 (double room). PLEASE NOTE: single rooms have already been reserved; we only have double rooms available.

Previous Big Sur attendees receive a 10% discount ($806) 

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.
