The days are getting shorter, the air is getting crisp, and yellow school buses are once again dotting the morning commute. While back-to-school time as an adult may not mean getting a brand new backpack or lunch box, it can be a good reminder that we should take the time to recommit to intentional learning and self-nurturing.

Back-to-school is a great time to deepen a practice of life-long learning, and Hedgebrook’s online writing series gives you the opportunity to experience a transformative writing program on a schedule that works for you. We know that it’s not feasible for everyone to join us as Writer in Residence, or to attend one of our Master Classes – each of which requires a commitment of time away from day-to-day responsibilities. With our online writing series, we’ve made Hedgebrook’s radical hospitality available in the comfort of your own home and at a pace that fits with your busy life. We offer classes in a diversity of genres designed to ground your writing practice and hone your craft. Classes are taped at the retreat, with the teacher and a small group of writers in the room together, so you’ll experience the alchemy of solitude and community that makes a Hedgebrook residency unique. Online classes are open to all genders and all levels of experience. You can sign up at any time during the class offering period.

As a bonus, we also share elements of Hedgebrook’s retreat experience to inspire your writing, such as recipes from our farmhouse kitchen and chefs (like this one for a fall favorite, Hedgebrook Curry Carrot Soup), images from our land to print or use as a screensaver, and messages to energize your process.
