Hedgebrook is just as wonderful as I imagined it to be. Actually, it is even better! At the Winter Salon I had an opportunity to meet so many talented women writers, and our teachers were incredible. From understanding how the use of imagery can aid in writing to incorporating yoga to benefit the writers’ body and mind, no stone was left unturned. And the food! How can I forget to mention the locally sourced, homemade meals?!
Hedgebrook is a place that understands the challenges women writers face — first in developing their work, and then in seeking publication. Hedgebrook is designed to help alleviate some of those burdens by providing a place of sanctuary for women writers.
I left the Winter Salon feeling energized and encouraged to put forth my best work in 2016. And I look forward to applying for Hedgebrook’s 2017 Writer-In-Residence program. If you are interested, click here for more information on Hedgebrook and their upcoming events.
