Bring Your Moxie To the Mic: A Page-To-Stage Storytelling Workshop

The seemingly simple act of telling a story, and the process of learning how to tell a story to a group of people, creates, in the words of the celebrated Moth storytelling series "empathy, confidence, life perspective, and the rare feeling of being listened to without being interrupted."

This four-class series culminates in a performance November 3 at the Hivery.

A healthy literary ecosystem relies on the interconnection of women. Write, recharge, and give back.

Four women-centered organizations—Hedgebrook, Moxie Road Productions, The Hivery, and All Things Book—have come together to empower you during this day of radical hospitality and radical exploration. When you’re nourished creatively and physically, you have the resources to make change.

Proceeds from this retreat will provide scholarships for Hedgebrook’s youth writing program, Y-WE Write.
