Is a writer’s retreat for you?

Should you attend a writing retreat?

If you’re a writer, whether you’re a beginner or a published author, you can definitely benefit from a writer’s retreat. But how does one choose the right one? In this post-pandemic world, you may not want to go too far afield, but there are still quite a few domestic retreats to choose from.

Here are a few of the things you should consider:

-Do you want complete solitude, or some socializing, with the opportunity to interact with other writers?

-Do you expect luxurious surroundings or is simplicity more your speed?

-How far are you willing to travel?

-Do you expect instruction and coaching or feedback, or just a quiet space to write with no distractions?

-What is your budget?
