Hedgebrook

Hedgebrook is a women's writing retreat center on Whidbey Island, in Washington.
from the website:

"The application period is now open. Hedgebrook welcomes applications for the 2007 Writers-in-Residence Program. The upcoming residency season runs from February 8 - November 17, 2007.Application Deadline: postmarked no later than September 30, 2006...

Hedgebrook hosts women writers working in all writing disciplines, and has welcomed to its Pacific Northwest island retreat nearly one thousand women from five different continents since the first residents arrived in 1988...

Writers apply for stays of two weeks to two months. Out of a field of several hundred applicants, approximately forty writers are selected for residency each year by a diverse committee comprised of writers, educators, agents, and editors. There is no residency fee; room and board are provided by Hedgebrook. In return for room and board, each resident is asked to be the best writer she can be while she is with us. Six writers are in residence at a time, each in her own cottage."
