This weekend I am headed to Seattle, Washington. On the agenda are multiple coffee house visits and, of course, a trip to Amazon’s new brick and mortar bookstore. But the primary reason for my trip to Seattle is to attend Hedgebrook’s Winter Salon. The one-day event is one of many of Hedgebrook’s creative workshops led by and for women writers.
Enjoy a day filled with lively conversation and delicious food, culminating in a party with an open mic. Write, learn, share stories and leave freshly inspired.”
Hedgebrook is a rural retreat for women writers on Whidbey Island, Washington, founded in 1988. The retreat is a working farm, offering organic produce for the writers and communal dinners each night prepared by in-house chefs. Hedgebrook’s global community of alumnae, more than 1,200 writers from all over the world, include celebrated author Gloria Steinem.
I look forward to sharing more about my experience at Hedgebrook. Stay tuned!
