At the Resort, we welcome writers of all genres, backgrounds, and experience levels to join our community, to share resources and cheer one another on. We offer inspiration, camaraderie, craft and publishing talks, and more, so that we can all write our stories and get them out into the world.
The writing life can be difficult, so let's make it a less lonely place for one another! We believe in finding the joy in working together and lifting one another up. Our motto is: Find Your Happy Place and Create!
The Resort was founded by writer Catherine LaSota and her husband, filmmaker Karl Jacob, as a physical space in Long Island City, Queens, NY for writers to gather and create. Our free virtual community is open to all writers from around the world and provides a place for us to learn together and develop and sustain writing practices together.
Our paid membership program, the Cabana Club, provides a supportive environment with a built-in writing group, exclusive craft and publishing talks from members of our community, ongoing encouragement and live online meetups, and other resources, including recordings of select craft and publishing talks at the Resort.
