Bring Your Moxie to the Mic with Hedgebrook and Café Society

This summer Moxie Road brings the spirit of Hedgebrook to you! Co-presented by Café Society.

For the third year in a row, Moxie Road Productions teams up with Hedgebrook, the women's writing collective, for an afternoon of writing, reading, and sharing. Bring your five-minute-piece (800-ish words) to share at our open mic!

At 5 pm, we'll meet for a silent write-in. 

At 7 pm, we'll pick four names out of a hat to join emcee Tarja Parssinen and selected Hedgebrook authors

Read! Write! Drink wine! Buy books!
