What to Bring to A Writing Retreat

When you’re making a list of things to pack for your writing retreat, it’s easy to remember the tangible things such as:

  • weather-appropriate clothing
  • comfortable shoes
  • toiletries
  • notebook and pens/pencils
  • laptop or tablet
  • noise canceling headphones
  • a printed copy of your WIP

But here are few things you’ll want to bring that you might not have considered:

  • an open mind
  • a positive attitude
  • your imagination and curiosity
  • a desire to improve as a writer

Some of these items I’ve heard over the years, and some came from the wonderful speakers at past Writing Retreat Sampler events.
