A Writer’s Personal Retreat with Kathy Carlton Willis
Show Notes

Are you in need of a break? Linda Goldfarb's guest, Kathy Carlton Willis, walks you through the process of personal retreats for writers.

Welcome to Your Best Writing Life, an extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference held in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mts of NC. I’m your host Linda Goldfarb. Each week I bring you tips and strategies from experts in the writing and publishing industry to help you excel in your craft. I’m so glad you’re listening in. During this episode, you’ll learn about A Writer’s Personal Retreat 

My industry expert is Kathy Carlton Willis - Known as God’s Grin Gal, Kathy writes and speaks with a balance of funny and faith, whimsy, and wisdom. Kathy is a former publicist who stimulates brain tsunamis as she coaches writers. Her group, WordGirls, lovingly calls her WordMama. Her words inspire grin-worthy moments despite groan-worthy experiences.

Linda and Kathy discuss the following:
What are some different types of personal retreats for writers?
What is the key element for a personal retreat?
What tools help us get the most from a personal retreat?
What do you recommend for a writer who can’t get away for a retreat?
What are some challenges to pre-address, so they don’t derail our retreat goals?
