Long known as one of the top international children’s writers agencies, 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 being offered here on the east coast in picturesque Cape Cod.

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 publishing giants 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. 


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


    Please recognize this is a working schedule and subject to change.


    Our faculty is made up of experienced writers, agents, and editors. Critique groups are small.  

    “Anne Sibley O'Brien was so lovely and approachable, giving us all much to think about (in gentle and non-confrontational ways). She's also to be commended for taking a lunch break to look at portfolios. Loved having an illustrator at the workshop”
