Welcome to 2021 Y-WE Write Summer Camp!
ABOUT THIS YEAR'S CAMP
This year's theme is Writing Our Liberation. Where does freedom live in your body? Where does it live in your writing? This camp will explore movement and creativity through our body's energy centers and using our imaginations to express our relationship with liberation through writing in one of three genres, songwriting, memoir poetry, and speculative fiction/BIPOC futurism. Meet 5 incredible professional writers and learn more about Hedgebrook Women's Writer Retreat. Please click here for a full description.
This year will be a mix of virtual and in-person time. Participants can choose from three tracks, each of which will be held in a different location to keep groups small and Covid-safe.
