King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, St. Simons Island, Georgia

The historic King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, St. Simons Island, Georgia, is hosting Scribbler’s Retreat.

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 this coastal landscape, in his ode to “The Marshes of Glynn.” 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.

Contemporary writers can find similar inspiration November 11-13, 2010 at the Scribbler’s Retreat Writers Workshop at the award-winning historic King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort. Pairing professional guidance and fellowship during the two-day conference, writers attend workshops, lectures and panel discussions led by 10 bestselling authors, editors, publishers and celebrated literary professionals. In addition to enjoying the luxurious Resort’s oceanfront accommodations, dining and Southern hospitality, attendees learn the newest in technology and innovative publishing trends
