Writing retreats & conferences

Oh for a writing retreat...

Many moons ago, I was a volunteer at the Melbourne Writers Festival. It was a wonderful time being surrounded by so many writers.

Recently, I’ve seen many of my writer friends on Facebook talking about a few different writers retreats and conferences. I would dearly love to go to some of these, but the issue is money. Even if I have the money for the ticket, I need to add on money for flights and accommodation as they seem to be in Sydney or Queensland…

I’ve been trying to work out how to get to some of these, but, as an unpublished author, it’s hard to justify the cost.

Then again, the opportunity to meet with other writers and attend workshops to improve my writing will be worth it.

Getting to these events won’t happen for me this year, but I am going to start saving up so I can attend at least one next year. Unless, of course, someone wants to sponsor me to attend…. I can dream 🙂

  1. I’m in the same boat, a lot of the writing/creative/healing retreats are either in NSW or Qld, making it way too expensive and a logistical nightmare with kids…
