Hedgebrook is joining forces with the Power of Hope, The Whidbey Institute and The Partnership for Youth Empowerment Global to offer a week long summer camp for aspiring young female writers.

A week of diverse workshops, classes and "one on one" sessions allow participants to build new skills, confidence and self esteem.
