entry arrow12:31 AM | Hedgebrook Retreat for Women Writers is Open for 2009 Applicants

Kimi Tuvera has emailed me some information about the Hedgebrook Retreat, hoping there are female writers out there who may be interested. For those who are, this is the thing to know: "Hedgebrook invests in women who write by providing them with space and time to create significant work, in solitude and community, and by developing an international network to connect writers and audiences."

Their website further describes the retreat: "Hedgebrook is on Whidbey Island, about thirty-five miles northwest of Seattle. Situated on 48-acres of forest and meadow facing Puget Sound, the retreat hosts women writers from all over the world for residencies of two weeks to two months, at no cost to the writer. Residents are housed in six handcrafted cottages, where they spend their days in solitude –- writing, reading, taking walks in the woods on the property, on nearby Double Bluff beach or trails around the island. In the evenings, they gather in the farmhouse kitchen to share a home-cooked gourmet meal, their work, their process and their stories. The women who come to Hedgebrook are writing in all genres, and are of all ages, ethnicities, backgrounds and levels of writing experience."

Go to their website, and download their application for the 2009 residencies. Deadline is September 25.
