The Hedgebrook retreat houses six writers (regardless of nationality or gender or genre)in residence at a time, each housed in a handcrafted cottage. They spend their days in solitude – writing, reading, taking walks in the woods on the property or on nearby Double Bluff beach. In the evenings, they gather in the farmhouse kitchen to share a home-cooked gourmet meal, their work, their process and their stories.

Notifications are made by the beginning of December. Residency season runs from February through October.

The deadline for submission is Tuesday, July 26, 2016, 11:59 PM.
