Hello, I'm Bruce Oliver, the owner of this website and sponsor the Writers Workshops on cruise ships. As a travel agency owner, blog writer and publisher of a custom magazine for travel I have the following question for you:
"Are you an aspiring writer that hopes to get published or are you a seasoned veteran with published novels or magazine articles to your credit?"
Well, regardless of what your background is with journalism, writing or publishing, if you're like me, you are always interested in learning more. That is the reason why this cruise workshop for all types of writers has been developed and offered to you and the public.
In 2013, I begin hosting writers on 7-day cruises from the Northeast and West Coasts. We will board our cruise ship and sit in on workshops conducted by award winning authors and writers. We will also enjoy everything that our cruise ship has to offer including the destination we are going to. How about visiting Alaska and the coast of New England in addition to learning more about the writing profession or avocation?
