I’m back in the office this week after a fantastic week in Las Vegas for the Fantasy Caper Craft Workshop. It was so good to spend some time connecting with our writers again.

We had to stop offering these workshops during the height of the pandemic, and then the venue we had used for years became undesirable for a host of reasons.

That’s all changed now!

We held the workshop for the first time at Resorts World Las Vegas. What a fantastic venue for a writing workshop! This new resort (it’s a Hilton property) focuses on entertainment in the greater sense rather than just the casino. In fact, the casino seems secondary. You can avoid it if you want.

The writers loved it. Even our writers with special dietary restrictions had places to eat. And it was quiet. Far different from the noise of our last venue and some other venues in Vegas.

We are excited to keep offering workshops at Resorts World now that we know how well they work. But we do have minimum numbers we need to reach to make these work from a business standpoint.

So, if you’ve been hesitating to sign up for the upcoming Romantic Suspense Craft Workshop in May or the Fantasy/Thriller Craft Workshop in July, I encourage you to get off the fence and sign up. These in-person workshops are one of the rare opportunities to learn the craft face-to-face from bestselling and award-winning writer and editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch. And Kris’ in-person workshops are legendary.

And don’t forget that the entire curriculum for all of our workshops (in-person and online) is available here.
