In the spirit of my renewed commitment to my own writing this spring, and in the hopes of giving other She Writers more tools and sources of inspiration to invest in their own writing projects, too, today I want to share a special offer made by the women writers' colony of Hedgebrook exclusively to She Writes: a 10% discount for She Writes members who register for the upcoming VORTEXT weekend writing workshop at Hedgebrook's magical Whidbey Island retreat in the Pacific Northwest.
VORTEXT: A Weekend Salon for Women Writers on Whidbey Island
June 1, 2 & 3, 2012
Hedgebrook invites you to converge with six renowned women writers for an extraordinary weekend salon on Whidbey Island at the famed Whidbey Institute at Chinook. Connect in small-group workshops ranging from writing character-driven fiction to re-occupying your mind through meditation. Come together through dynamic keynotes and discussions about opportunities and challenges for women who write. Share meals, open mics, conversation and community in a stunningly beautiful setting. Retreat, recharge, rewrite = VORTEXT.
Instructors: Dorothy Allison, Karen Joy Fowler, Elizabeth George, Jane Hamilton, Ruth Ozeki, and Gail Tsukiyama.
SheWrites members receive a special 10% discount! Please visit http://bit.ly/vortextshe for more information, schedules, teacher bios and accommodations. Space is limited.
I wish I could be there, but I will most certainly attend another such event -- as part of my renewed commitment to my writing, my hope is to make Hedgebrook part of my 2012 writing year. If you can give yourself this gift, do! And enjoy a discount for the generosity and support of women writers you have demonstrated by being a part of She Writes.
