Karen Benke

I’m the author of a poetry collection and three creative writing adventure books: Rip the Page!Leap Write In!Write Back Soon! and Rip ALL the Pages! 52 Tear Out Adventures for Creative Writers.  A writing guide and visiting author, I create books for the young and young-at-heart to explore and expand their imaginations. A recipient of a few grants and awards, and residencies from Hedgebrook, Numeroventi, The Moth, and Djerassi Resident Artists Program, I lead writing adventures for children internationally and, closer to home, in the San Francisco Bay Area at The Writers Nestlocated in a converted lumber mill, circa 1892.


Give more women the power to shine their light on the world now and in the future with your gift to Hedgebrook.
