Planning a Creative Writing Retreat
I will be honest when I say I have never been on a writing retreat. The idea has always interested me, though. When I read about some of my favorite writers from the past, I noticed the way that they often went on trips with other writing friends, or spent time on their own retreating to another place in the world and just writing.

Meet the Writing Retreat.

I've been thinking about organizing a retreat with some writing friends in fall of this year, but none of us are quite sure how to carry it out. And I found this video showcasing a retreat!
As you can see, they had a lot of fun there, but they say they also got a lot of writing done. I believe that while it is probably easy to get distracted, when you are surrounded by other writers, there is more writing, more discussion, more revision that will get done!

While that looked like great fun, I needed to get some more ideas about specific ideas for how to actually set up a retreat...and this video has done it for me! Now, this was for a singular writer, so I'm going to work on including some more co-working writing activities, but it is nice to hear about just how it really helps someone writer.

Has anyone organized or participated in a writing retreat?

If so, let me know some ideas. I definitely need help with the planning.
