I love sharing information. I think the circle in Remembered is inspired by my love of sharing information, skills, tips, and advice.
Years ago I went to Breadloaf and to the Iowa's Summer Writer Program. I enjoyed both for different reasons. My advice for both would be to immerse yourself fully. I went to Breadloaf in person. There were a lot of events, talks, panels, and workshops. I brought my family with me so found it challenging to balance everything at once. On the other hand, when I went to Iowa, I went alone. It was three weeks and while the workshops were engaging, I had a lot of free time. I was fortunate to have made a lovely friend there.
Have you attended a writing retreat? What are your tips and advice on applying, finding, paying, attending, etc...?
