Women Authoring Change
Hedgebrook is a state of mind -- creative and disciplined, personal but communal -- that I have carried with me ever since my residency.

Hedgebrook is a global community of women writers and people who seek extraordinary books, poetry, plays, films and music by women. A literary nonprofit, our mission is to support visionary women writers whose stories and ideas shape our culture now and for generations to come. We offer writing residencies, master classes and salons at our 25-year-old retreat on Whidbey Island, and public programs that connect writers with readers and audiences around the world.  

This is a holy place, life-giving and nourishing-body, mind and spirit.
~ Rita Bresnahan
