Long recognized as one of the top agencies for children’s book writers and illustrators, Andrea Brown Literary Agency (ABLA) brings top tier professionals together with both beginner and seasoned writers. This workshop, popular in Big Sur, California, is proudly also being offered on the east coast.

Two industry professionals will mentor you in very small group sessions where one-on-one feedback is provided.

                  Writers will get the chance to mingle and discuss their works with editors, agents, and published authors                throughout the all-inclusive weekend.

Space is limited.

Through these personalized workshops, ABLA and guest editors have had the good fortune to find new talent. Are you next? 

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned writer, don't miss this incredible opportunity to work on your material with the best in the industry in one of the world's most beautiful locations. 

If you are considering attending an upcoming Workshop, you may want to hold off on submitting your manuscripts to the agents at ABLA or any other agency until after the Workshops as it is likely you will want to make revisions. You want to make sure your manuscripts are perfect.



Big Sur on Cape Cod is held in the beautiful Sea Crest Beach Hotel, right on the ocean in North Falmouth.
