Hedgebrook Equivox 2019
Equivox, Hedgebrook Writers’ Retreat for Women’s annual fundraiser provides an opportunity to support and learn more about the retreat’s many programs for women writers of all types, including screenwriters, filmmakers and songwriters. This event includes brunch, a raffle, storytelling, a chance to meet some of the writers whose work is supported by Hedgebrook and, this year, a keynote address by activist/writer Janet Mock, the New York Times bestselling author of Surpassing Certainty and Redefining Realness. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and Marie Claire, where she’s a contributing editor. She was a featured speaker at the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and is currently a writer, producer, and director on the FX drama series “Pose,” for which she made history as the first trans woman of color to write and direct an episode of television. Elliott Bay Book Company will be on hand with a selection of books by participating writers. Advance registration is required to attend. More information and tickets ($175) at Hedgebrook.org.
