In episode 22, I had a wonderful conversation with Andrea Savage about writing her memoir that focuses on the time she spent in the Peace Corps in Malawi, Africa in her mid-twenties.
Follow or subscribe to Your Writing Retreat Connection on: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or Google Podcasts. Note that episodes are usually on Apple and Spotify right away, but take awhile to populate on Google.
Andrea attended several Writeaways Writing Retreats to help keep her on track and understand how to structure her story, and found they also helped her be more honest with herself about what she was writing.
We also chatted about feedback from the retreat instructors and fellow writers improved her writing and motivated her, how the pandemic upended her writing progress, the joy she gets from writing, and why publshing doesn't have to be your end goal.
