Have you ever wished that you could attend your own private writing workshop that would teach you exactly what you need to know, at the right pace for you, and respond to your questions, problems, and needs in extensive one-on-one sessions?  That’s what Your Personal Odyssey is.

* Expert Feedback

* Deep Mentoring

former senior editor at Bantam Doubleday Dell

About the Program:


For 26 years, the Odyssey Writing Workshops Charitable Trust, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has offered its world-renowned, 6-week workshop, helping writers of fantasy, science fiction, and horror make major improvements in their work.  Fifty-nine percent of graduates have been professionally published, and among graduates are award winners, Amazon bestsellers, and New York Times bestsellers.

 Now Odyssey is transforming into a breakthrough new program.  Students taking Your Personal Odyssey will receive the inspiring, transformative learning experience Odyssey is known for, but that experience will be customized to be more responsive to how each writer works and what each writer needs.

Your Personal Odyssey combines the intensive, advanced Odyssey lectures with expert feedback and deep mentoring in an experience designed to maximize learning and improvement for each student.

Odyssey is a phenomenal experience!  Jeanne works tirelessly to help each student grow and make meaningful progress by providing detailed critiques and meeting individually

to develop learning goals and plans to achieve those goals.  Odyssey is truly life changing, and I can’t recommend it enough.

–Meg Moira, Odyssey 2021

Your Personal Odyssey will help you follow the unique path that is most helpful for you, that teaches you the skills you need to improve the most.

Make no mistake, Odyssey will tear away all your comforting delusions about yourself as a writer. But something happens along the way, a painful—but ultimately hugely rewarding–process of discovering true worth, ability, and uniqueness that replaces those false delusions with the truth: you have a story to tell, and only you can tell it.

–Meagan Spooner, New York Times bestselling author and Odyssey 2009 graduate
