Writing residencies and retreats

21-Residencies-for-Writers-in-2015Who’s been where, and which writing retreats do you recommend?  Aerogramme’s new list of retreats for 2015 includes Hedgebrook, an oasis for women writers near and dear to my heart: hard to get into (with 1500 applications this year!) but worth reapplying for, since, once you are a Hedgebrook alumna, you have a family for life.  I’ll be teaching there for Vortex with the amazing Ruth Ozeki, who was just here with us at Goddard on the coldest day in anyone’s memory in Vermont (minus 23).  A Tale for the Time BeingThe students are still talking about you Ruth, and voraciously reading their new signed copies of A Tale for the Time Being. This year, Vortex is offering small workshops, lectures and panel discussions with a new group of teachers, including Carole DeSanti, Dani Shapiro, Victoria Redel, and Hannah Tinti. What an amazing group of writers for a long weekend!  (Full bios on the Hedgebrook website here.)  Did I digress from the topic of writing residencies and retreats? I don’t think so.  Here at Goddard, we are retreating together in an action-packed week of writing, reading, learning, listening, dreaming, and thanks to Ruth, meditating our way into our stories so that we can access the world of our stories with our bodies.  Wherever you are writing, or retreating, let us know where you are!

Current Goddard students will have the opportunity to complete their degrees at the same tuition rate through a teach-out with like-minded institution, Prescott College. Updates and scholarship funds will be available in the coming weeks and months. Information will be posted to www.goddard.edu
