JUST WHAT IS A WRITERS RETREAT?
Sea Island Writers Retreat founder, Tina McElroy Ansa is interviewed about the genesis of the Sea Island Writers Retreat by memoirist, award-winning journalist, and editor Wanda Lloyd. Tina and Wanda were Spelman College freshman-year roommates, and they are “2 Old Chicks Who Know a Lot of Sh*t!” podcast partners. In this conversation, Tina will answer the questions many writers have about workshops and retreats: What is a retreat for writers? What can you expect? What is workshopping a work-in-progress? Why should writers attend retreats, and why should Black (women) writers workshop their writing? What’s different about a retreat rather than taking the writing journey all by yourself?
