Introduction to Hedgebrook

Women Authoring Change

Laila Lalami


My work is engaged with history, whether ancient or recent... I want my readers to feel that they have something in common with the stranger, the outsider, the misfit, the other. I want them to look at the world in a novel way.

    Ruth Ozeki


    For me, writing fiction is a particular way of thinking. It’s a kind of thought experiment, or a form of speculation and reflection, and I write novels in order to think about the world in this specialized way that is like no other.

      Barbara Mhangami-Ruwende


      I chose to never turn away from things that are not right, both within myself and in the world around me... I became an activist because not turning away comes with the compulsion to do what I can in the fight to end injustice of all kinds.

        Hedgebrook supports women so they may speak the truth, tell the messy, sometimes unpopular stories… find their voice…
