Retreat to Advance


The opportunity to go to a one-day writing retreat organized by Hedgebrook magically appeared on the horizon a couple of weeks ago. I jumped at it. A chance to spend the day writing, learning from writers, hanging out with writers? Heaven. Not to mention that I would perforce be free of other minion duties…

The day turned out even better than expected. I took a writing workshop with Sherri Smith, whose books I now must read — especially Lucy the Giant, which sounds delicious.

Hedgebrook, I have just learned, has residencies as well as master classes and workshops to support visionary women writers, so check out their website at Applications are now being accepted for next year.
