As a former participant of the Winter Writers' Weekend, let me just say there are plenty of reasons to sign up. Here are my top five:
1. You’ll have the time to focus solely on your writing. I mean, how often do you have time set aside specifically to write without all the other chaos of life interrupting you?
2. There will be unique and fun writing prompts to get your creative juices flowing. Last year there were writing prompts based on board game questions, old photographs, and we even did some blackout poetry.
3. At the retreat, you’ll meet other writers who want to improve their writing, and help you improve yours. You will work in small groups to workshop your writing and receive feedback.
4. At the end of the night, you will have a chance to showcase the piece you worked on at the retreat. This is great experience for future readings. Plus, last year, we even had the Blugold Radio station record pieces to be played on the radio!
