2012 Writers in Residence Application Now Available Online!

Hedgebrook’s 2012 residency season application is now available.

I am pleased and excited to share with you that we have now shifted to an online application process and I can’t say I will miss the mountains of paper I hosted in my office for months.  After last year’s beta-dabble into an on-line process with our application, it became clear that a full transition was warranted.  If I had any doubts, they were quickly dispelled when the tubs of application packets avalanched into my office with close to 800 applicants last year.  The environmental impacts involved with the creation, shipping and recycling of such an incredible volume of paper were clearly excessive and unnecessary.

So began the transition to create an on-line process that would provide an uncomplicated experience for our writers. To accomplish this, we partnered with SlideRoom, a leading online applicant management system, and believe that we have been successful in our efforts.
I hope you find the process smooth and simple.  We have certainly worked to make it so.
