LAVA Visionaries April Dammann and Adrienne Crew are alumnae of Hedgebrook, a writers retreat for women located on an island in the Puget Sound of Washington State. They are both involved with Hedgbrook’s Southern California Alumnae Council, which will be hosting a one-day retreat designed to give writers the space and time to just write in an unstructured, quiet environment on Sunday, August 4, 2013 at the old Doheny mansion near USC in Los Angeles.

THE COUNTRY IN THE CITY
One-Day Writers’ Retreat at Downtown LA campus of Mount Saint Mary’s College in Los Angeles
SUNDAY, AUGUST 4, 2013
9AM – 5:30PM
Turn off your clocks, schedules, and expectations. This is a day to nurture body and soul, commune with your muse, and above all write. Women writers of all experience levels and interests are warmly welcomed.
Participants may join writing circles to inspire imagination and hone craft, write quietly in community with others, wander to the “farmhouse table” for talk about writing and group feedback, or simply sit under a tree and dream. In the afternoon, industry professionals and Hedgebrook alumnae will be available for one-on-one mentoring. Feedback on work will always be given with the utmost respect for the writer’s vision. Participants should note, however, that the Retreat is a day for rejuvenation, not for detailed manuscript review.
Enjoy a day inspired by Hedgebrook!
