Invest in your writing with a Hedgebrook Master Class!
Have you hit a wall writing your TV script? Are you stuck developing your main character? Is your short story not evoking the memory of your grandmother's cooking like it should? Then we have a Master Class for you!
Food, at every stage of its becoming, is also context and metaphor for the human condition, and the life of the planet. And all great food writing transcends its subject matter to engage emotional and experiential "truths."
Using Hedgebrook’s and Whidbey Island’s rich environment of growing, raising, and preparing food, this workshop will help writers of all kinds—memoirists, journalists, essayists, even fiction writers—create stories that engage the journey from farm to table to illuminate deeper aspects of life on earth.

Intro to TV Comedy Writing with Wendy Goldman & Robin Schiff
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to create your own TV show? This class will guide you to begin developing an original comedy pilot. All you need are the seeds of an idea that captures your imagination. We’ll work together to bring that idea to life with a focus on crafting vivid characters, which are the fundamental building blocks of effective storytelling.
Throughout the class, we’ll screen and analyze a variety of TV comedies with unforgettable characters and crack the code of how their relationships keep us coming back week after week. Writing exercises will give you the tools to explore your own characters’ inner lives and the emotions that drive them.
Whether you’re writing memoir or fiction, the representation of the self is inevitable. Even without intention, we find ourselves dripping into the characterization of the protagonist or in the case of memoir, we are the protagonist. Ironically, although we should be experts on our own characters, sometimes we are limited in our own perspective of ourselves and lose the complexity that develops nuanced character.
In this course, we discuss how to develop outsider lenses, super-ego perspectives, and distance from ourselves to mine our own complications. This class is appropriate for writers of fiction, memoir and playwriting, and is open to all levels of experience. Apply Now!
