Hedgebrook offers the Master Class Retreat Series of weeklong sessions, limited to six to seven women writers each, on Whidbey Island, about 35 miles northwest of Seattle. The program includes workshops in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, one-on-one meetings with master instructors, and time to write. The June 15 to June 22 retreat, “Past Tense: History as Resource and Inspiration,” for poets and fiction writers was led by Deborah Harkness. The cost of the retreat was $3,000, which included tuition, lodging in a private cottage, and all meals. Using the online submission system, writers submitted up to 10 pages of poetry or prose, a resumé, a personal statement, and contact information for two references by April 20. There was no application fee. Visit the website for more information.
