I just ran across a great article by Jen Smith of the Wood and Stone Songwriting Retreat. She talks about five major benefits of attending a songwriting retreat. Here is a summary of the five benefits:
1. We are removed from constant distractions at home.
2. Surrounded by like minded creative people that inspire us, support us and kick start our own creativity.
3. Close personal access to successful career writers.
4. Build lasting friendships.
5. Get a LOT of writing done!
