Even if you're not aiming to roam the world and finance it by your writing, you will pick up so much from this workshop, just as I did. I'm not a native English speaker so I definitely learned a lot and it provided the right impetus to get my book completed. More importantly though, I learned that no matter what your writing level is at, you will improve dramatically with daily practice through fun and interesting exercises. These two weeks were just perfect for me. It wasn't just about writing and storytelling (thanks Joe, Kaila) but also about getting your sites and blog online (thanks Carl!) and cultivating your audience (thanks Adam). The location was a convenient resort on Koh Phangan with super friendly staff. Add to that, a great team of inspired fellow writers and you have a magical combination! Thanks for the inspiration. It's been a true pleasure attending this workshop and I will gladly recommend anyone that has an interest in writing to attend.
