Road Trip Wednesday #112: Writing Retreat of Dreams



Welcome to our 112th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.


This Week's Topic

Describe your dream writing retreat. Where would you go? Who and what would you bring?


Road Trip Song of the Week:
"Holocene" by Bon Iver
Kirsten Hubbard

Kirsten is the author of Like Mandarin, Wanderlove, and the middle grade novel Watch the Sky.

  28. Adelboden Switzerland! I know I know you've never heard of it. But look at the pictures and tell me it's not completely beautiful and inspiring.

    Come with me to Adelboden!
