Just want to encourage all of you to apply for a Hedgebrook Fellowship. I was awarded one last October/November and it was a magical experience.
They provide a private cottage on a lovely wooded estate and provide all your meals. There are six women there at one time and a staff of about ten! The retreat manager Vito joked it was like being given three "wives".
You are allowed the freedom to rest and write. Such luxery. It's hard to get into, but on the other hand they only have 600-700 applicants each year for thrity or so spots. Piece of cake compared to the number we are used to competing against in screenplay contests :)
The application are available in June
