HOW TO BUILD A WORLD THAT YOUR READERS ABSOLUTELY LOVE

A world-building experience, writer’s seminar, and your destination vacation in two epic days!


Are you struggling to get your paranormal and dark fantasy stories in front of readers? Do your vampires lack bite? Have you dreamed of building a universe with other authors and writing stories in that shared world? We’ve got the solution to your problem…

WRITE ANY KIND OF STORY IN THIS SHARED WORLD. 

URBAN FANTASY, PARANORMAL, SUPERNATURAL!

You’ll gather with other authors at "Witches of Salem 2021" in Salem, Massachusetts, and learn how to plan a blockbuster series from two guys who have done it. You’ll get private, guided practice on the art of collaboration including the secret to avoiding the most common mistakes new collaborators make.


Plus, experience the "writer's room" where we generate ideas together which will become short stories in the anthology. 


Throughout the two-day event, you’ll meet other authors and editors who also want to build a successful author platform and you’ll attend intimate workshops that will show you exactly how to do it.

YOU’LL GET MENTORED IN THREE STORY METHOD AND GET INDIVIDUAL ADVICE!

FROM TWO CAREER AUTHORS.

What past attendees have to say about the world-building retreat experience...



The best writing conference experience I have ever had. The group was small and friendly and the information super-charged. I plan to buy a virtual ticket to any events J and Zach plan that I can't personally attend.


Philip Carroll



A unique, rewarding experience you won’t get anywhere else. Great for writers of all experience levels that have an interest in collaboration. Time and money well spent.


Lori Drake



A fantastic experience! If you are just starting out on your career author journey (as I am), you could not hope to find a better team to help you learn the ropes. J. and Zach are committed to providing intimate experiences where new and veteran writers can learn and network. I am attending Rock Apocalypse in May, and am eagerly looking forward to what these guys have in store for 2020!!

  • You are adventurous and want to experience being a career author without doing it by staring at a screen.
