Earlier this month, I was featured on Hedgebrook's website.
Hedgebrook is a beautiful writer's retreat (or, as Gloria Steinem says, an advance) on Whidbey Island in the Pacific Northwest.
Many years ago, I stayed for a month in a snug cottage called Fir, read a lot, and wrote even more.
Hedgebrook asks nothing more of the writers they invite than to be present and take care of themselves and each other. It is a rare gift. I still feel incredibly for the radical hospitality I experienced and the community I found. Thank you, Hedgebrook!
